For the first 600 metres, the trail runs along the pedestrian and bicycle road along the Pyhäntie road. As you enter the National Park the trail will take you through varied heath forests to a beautiful mire lined by a handsome fell range. The trail is mostly easy gravel path but has some altitude differences and some stairs in the steepest sections (the longest stairs have metal steps with a narrow wood covered section for the dogs). The duckboards take you over the wet parts of the mire to the bird-watching tower. The bird-watching tower has been closed due to its poor condition (updated 5/31/2023).
