Nature Trails 

  • The first half of the Kirkaslampi Nature Trail, 3.5 km, presents the mire and mire restoration with the help of eight information boards. After the restored mire stretch, there is a bird-watching tower (located halfway through the trail), from which views stretching over many kilometres open out to the poor fen of Olvassuo. The return route to the Kirkaslampi lean-to shelter runs across natural-state mires. The trail's mire sections have duckboards, and the trail has been marked in the terrain with white paint marks.
    • Services: Kirkaslampi lean-to shelter (including a campfire site and a dry toilet) as well as the Kirkaslampi parking area.
    • Sight: bird-watching tower.
        
  • Sammakkosuo Nature Trail, 1.5 km, is a path in the northern part of Olvassuo. The information boards present the mire and mire nature. At the end of the trail, there is a lean-to shelter and a bird-watching tower, with a view opening out to the Resu-Sammakko flarks and the open Sammakkosuo Mire. The trail's mire sections have duckboards, and the trail has been marked in the terrain with white paint marks.
