Wild windswept bogs extend westwards from the old medieval road that leads northwards through the pine forests of Kyrönkangas. This is a great place to come and watch birds, especially in the springtime when songbirds sing in the woods and marshes. The marshes offer peace and proximity to nature at any time of year.

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Lakeland.
