The summer hiking route leads across quite varying but considerably easy wilderness and it is of medium difficulty. At some intervals the route follows forest roads. Hiking across the area's mires and damp patches has been made easier by duckboards. The trail can be travelled along when the ground is not frozen.

The summer hiking route is marked quite well with blue paint symbols and signposts. Hiking this route does not require special wilderness survival or orienteering skills, but hikers should have a basic knowledge of hiking and basic skills. There are an abundance of service structures along the route. The route is not suitable for the disabled. Due to the sections of the trail being quite long this route is not recommended for families with children.
