  • Bijarim means nutmeg and that's what the forest trail smells like. This pleasant smell will accompany you on the whole 40min-1hour stroll. The highlight is an 813 year old tree but throughout the trail you will see other tree species. Do be careful that the trail may become muddy on a rainy day (like the day I went) and I spent some time avoiding puddles. Nonetheless, there is a wash point for you to wash your feet or shoes at the exit of the forest! It is a very peaceful and calming place to clear your mind. Come to breathe in fresh air!
