Which nature trails are currently in decent condition?

If you want to mark the arrival of the new year out in nature, the Nature Conservation Agency's spokeswoman Elīna Ezeriņa told Latvian Radio about trails that are clean enough to walk as of December 29.

“The nature trails are not a park – they are not cleaned like streets and sidewalks, but many people have already made their own footpaths. [...] Weather conditions have to be taken into account: in snowfall and blizzard, the footpaths have to be made by oneself. Fewer kilometers would be [accessible] for walking.”

The Priežu trail of Kolka should now be avoided because there are stairs that can get slippery. Some of the trails in Gauja National Park have been cleaned in the area adjacent to Sigulda. “We have secured access to the Gūtmaņa cave, the Pēterala Trail, and Paradīze Hill,” said Ezeriņa.

On the other hand, the Zaļā kāpa bike trail in Jūrmala has now been converted to a ski track of six kilometers.

Near Rīga, the Lūžņu grāvis trail is cleared, as well as the Pēterezers trail in Kurzeme and Zirgu sala trail in Liepāja, according to Ezeriņā.. "

Those who want to celebrate the New Year in nature and decorate a fir tree must then remember to collect the ornaments because otherwise they will become pollution of nature.
