The trail runs in the Kauhaneva-Pohjankangas National Park, passing a peaceful avian oasis in the wilderness along a former royal travel route. From the observation tower at the borderline between a forest and a mire, visitors can observe life on a raised bog with hummocks, and hikers with a keen eye and a camera can always find some wonders of nature to capture in a photograph. When it is time to eat your packed lunch, you can have a break in the observation tower or at its base, at the Salomaa campfire site, or by Kauhalammi Pond. The highlight of your summer hike could be a plunge from the swimming dock into the refreshing waters of the pond.
The trail is a suitable day trip destination for all, including beginners (but is not accessible to all).
About 3 hours
There is an information board and a map at the start of the trail with thorough details of the route. Along the trail, there are signposts at all trail crossroads. The trail is otherwise unmarked.
