Alekšupīte waterfall is the highest waterfall in Latvia - 4.15 meters. It has been firmly embanked since the 17th century in order to serve as a powerful stream for the operation of the first paper mills in Kurzeme. During the Duke’s time, also the gunpowder was made at the Castle mills.
The trail starts at the Kuldiga's pride - the brick bridge over the River Venta. Since 1998, it is a national architectural monument. Bridge is the third longest brick bridge in Europe and the second oldest brick vault bridge in Latvia. The Kuldigas brick bridge had been built according to the standards of the 19th century - 500 feet long and 26 feet wide, so that carriages could easily change on it.
The trail distance at the park area is 0,4km, but it can be hiked circle-like, walking along Krasta street on the way back. There are two resting areas with benches at the trail. Due to stairs, terrain and slopes, the trail has limited access to people with movement impairment and parents with baby-strollers.
