Talkoovuoret-Miehinkäinen Nature Trail

The nature trail includes two route alternatives: The Talkoovuoret and Miehinkäinen trails. Both are 1.5 km long and can easily be completed one after another. Talkoovuoret Nature Trail runs through varied forest terrains and descends to a trench enclosed by dramatic cliffs.  Miehinkäinen Nature Trail is easier than the Talkoovuoret trail, and runs mainly through wetland. The birdwatching tower is great for viewing birds nesting and resting on Lake Miehinkäinen.

We urge hikers to take extra care in wet conditions as the cliffs and the part can be slippery. The lichen-covered cliffs can be easily damaged by footfall, so hikers are kindly asked to show consideration towards the delicate species and keep to the paths.
