Safety on hiking

At winter, the road to the Pohjoisniemi trailhead from main road no. 87 is not ploughed, but space for a few cars is cleared at the intersection. Visitors can ski along the roadway to the park from here.

There are no waste bins at the hut, so we ask that visitors bring their own litter out of the area. Read more about hiking without littering.
