- Haukkalammentie can become congested from time to time. Weekends from May to September are most crowded. Parking on the shoulder is strictly prohibited to ensure constant access for emergency vehicles. For visitors arriving by car, the best starting points for excursions are the parking areas of Kattila, Högbacka, and Siikaniemi. Haukkalampi can also be reached on foot from the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia, but the hiking trail is challenging.
