suksenjärvi trail

The trail starts on the heaths at the Parra Leisure Centre and heads towards the former loggers’ cabin at Sivi, passing through commercial forest sites of various ages. A sense of the wilderness can be experienced by Lake Suksenjärvi, where you can climb up two bird-watching towers and spot a wide range of avian species during the spring migration and nesting periods. Along this trail, there are several options for a rest spot from simple huts to lean-to shelters, and all of these rest spots also have a dry toilet.
