Hossa National Park Trails

There are about 90 km of trails in the Hossa National Park. The trails, most of which are easy to travel on, run through the most handsome esker and lake scenery in Hossa. You can set off for a long hike by linking circle trails by means of the connecting trails. There are trails, destinations and accommodation that are accessible to all in the national park and close to the visitor centre.  

In many places, the hiking and biking trails run along the same trails. Hossa also provides trails that are accessible to all. Please be considerate to the others on the trail.
