The Evil Spirit Hill is a place, where berry pickers and mushroom pickers have always been getting lost and walkers get confused right at the outset. The Rauda forest often is the venue for orienteering competitions, and all the athletes are aware that in the area of the Evil Spirit Hill, compasses are unreliable with the arrow dancing about like crazy; orienteering runners cannot detect the control points and run past them. Records made on journalists’ dictaphones in this area are ruined by noise interferences. If you follow the trail indications, you will not get lost!
Ancestral beliefs not to get lost:
You can read about the stories of werewolves in Kurzeme in the book "Werewolf Tales of Kurzeme" by the theologian Ralph Kokin, but the stories recorded here - in the Raudas Forest, can be read here.
