The landscape-structural analysis of geosystems along the ecological trail "The Way to clean Baikal" (Barguzinsky Range, Zabaikalsky National Park) was presented in the article. The landscape structure was studied using the principles of geosystems theory developed by V.B. Sochava. Based on thesatellite images and field observations, a landscape map was compiled at the level of large-scale topological study of landscapes on the facies rank. Regional patterns, characteristics of climate and relief, differentiation of vegetation and soils, especially the modern use of the area were given in a work. The studied incleded detailed description of vegetation, as the crucial component of a landscape. It was revealed that the trail and its innfrastructuer were a unique part of the recreational infrastructure with a significant number of different landscapes, a lot of observation platforms, parking lots, i.e landscape-ecological study of the territory is a source of information for formation a list of recreational and attractive objects, consider options for location of the object of cultural tourism and limiting visits to the territories.
