Trail description

part of outdooractive

The nature trail first travels along a dirt road and a forest road, occasionally winding through more luxuriant vegetation and under fir trees. There are information boards on the nature of the region along the trail. The road soon becomes a narrow path and the environment changes into a heath typical of the ridge-cut area. The trail travels along ridges and between four clear lakes and ponds. In the area between the lakes there is a well-equipped rest area with a shelter. From the rest area, the trail continues along the lakeside back to the start.

Good to know

The nature trail mainly travels through a heath, which is suitable for light footwear in dry weather. The structures in the rest area were renovated in 2013. The break area also features a well and rowing boat, which are free to use. There are still old structures along the nature trail that require caution..

Difficulty level

Most of the trail is easy to navigate. There is no elevation. Mid-way along the trail, passage is slightly impeded by a short stretch of trail that is slanted sideways and an old broken step, which can be bypassed. Clear markings.
