Tucked away in the Asveja Regional Park is the riveting Jurkiškio stream. Despite its brief stretch of just 1.2 km, the little river boasts a dramatic drop of around 12 metres, resembling the torrents of mountain brooks. To unravel the full beauty of this canyon-like valley, a 1.5 km trail has been established alongside the stream, equipped with informational stands and signposts.
Tucked away in the Asveja Regional Park is the riveting Jurkiškio stream. Despite its brief stretch of just 1.2 km, the little river boasts a dramatic drop of around 12 metres, resembling the torrents of mountain brooks. Flanked by slopes rising to a striking 18 metres, its bed is dotted with pebbles. At the heart of the gorge lies a state-protected natural heritage artefact – the Jurkiškio stone, spanning around 5 metres. To unravel the full beauty of this canyon-like valley, a 1.5 km trail has been established alongside the stream, equipped with informational stands and signposts.
The trail's start, near the parking area, features an informative stand with a map. Recently updated, modern signs line the route, while renewed staircases descend into the valley. Although arrows suggest a counter-clockwise path, it's possible to traverse the trail in the opposite direction too.
The trail incorporates several viewing platforms overlooking the Jurkiškio stream valley. In autumn, with the fall of leaves, the Asveja lake becomes visible through tree branches. A resting area is set up at the trail's beginning, while benches are strategically placed throughout, offering moments of respite.
