Good to know! At this and the next section, it is advisable to carefully follow the markers in nature and use GPX files, because the network of off-road trails is very dense and the terrain is difficult. In this section, the Forest Trail intersects with other hiking routes.

Alternatives: Physically able hikers can combine this section with the next one and cross the Kurtuvėnai Regional Park in one day (31 km in total). In Kurtuvėnai Park, it is worth staying longer and taking the time get to know other trails and routes: www.krpd.lt/index.php?module=editable&action=separated&id=449
