Karhunahas is located in Töysänperä, Petäjävesi. The place is an ancient haunt of bear hunters, where they would run and trap the bears in a cave in the canyon. It is an impressive and rugged piece of ancient forest with a ravine, through which, at its foot, a tranquil river runs. There is a signposted 600 m path to Karhunahas with boardwalks.

On top of the steep cliff, there is a lean-to and a campfire, with views over the ravine.  Join the signposted Karhunlenkki trail, a 700 m route that circles around a deep canyon where specimens of local wildlife are in abundance.
