During the winter, only some roads inside the National Parks are maintained. Check the availability from the location maps and leaflets. For example in Tiilikkajärvi, there is no winter maintenance on the road that leads to the Pohjoisniemi parking area. Sammakkotammi parking area should be reachable also during the winter time.
Just to be sure, winter hikers could pack their cars with shovels and a small bag of gravel incase of thick snow sheets and icy slippery hills.
