Pedestrian cognitive path through the Bijotai-Širvintas forests
We invite you to have a trip by a pedestrian cognitive path between Lakes Dusia and Metelys. Here is the narrowest part of the sandy land between the great lakes. It is shorter than a kilometre. You will find here an entire variety of natural complexes that has formed on benches of the three lakes. On the highest bench you will definitely notice ranges of hillocks covered with a pinewood and drifted as if sand dunes, dying little lakes and swamps that appeared in their places. On the lakeshores of the Dusia you will have a possibility to watch flocks of water birds and to enjoy the panorama of the biggest lake of Dzūkija region. Path of the nature that leads through the ridges of sand hillocks via a pinewood of the Bijotai forest, little swamps and the Dusia lakeside is 3.3 km long.

Pedestrian cognitive path in the Trakas forest
Any visit to a forest, like the one to any other sight of nature, will be much more interesting, when we become familiar with trees, grass plants, mushrooms, animals, and when we learn to respect nature. At the beginning of the Trakas pedestrian cognitive path there is an information stand, an arbour, and a parking lot. The path is marked; there are information boards as well as a little bridge over the swamp.
