Dabas taka "Bernāti"

The trail has been constructed to reach the Pūsēnu dune and it leads to the top of the highest dune in Latvia – Pūsēnu dune (37m). The locals call it a “mountain”. It can be reached by stairs and a well-trodden pathway. The dune developed between  1785 and 1835, when around 80 houses were buried under the sand, including the house called “Pūsēnu”, where the forester’s family lived that time. That’s where the dune got it’s name of. In 1970-ies part of the Pūsēnu dune had been digged off and sand was used for the production of silicate blocks. Digging stopped in 1980, when sand suitable for production had ran low.
