Korouoma Nature Reserve

In Korouoma the route between Pirunkirkko and Julmakallio is closed from visitors. The stairs in the route are in very bad condition.

There is a beawer living in the area between Pirunkirkko and Julmakallio. It has caused flood and the river bank has collapsed on some parts. A couple of bridges have fallen down. The route is available when turning away from the path from afar and across the beawer dams. Rubber boots or waterproof hiking shoes are recommended.
