The nature trail in the Kulhanvuori area is approximately 3 km long. The highest point of the hill rises 260 m above sea level. Within the landscape itself, the hill stands 60 m higher than its surroundings. The bottom of the Syväojanrotko ravine is shaded from the sun, and you can see remnants of spectacular ice walls even in July.

Starting point and guidance: The trail begins from the Kulhanvuori campfire site by lake Iso-Musta. The car park is 500 m from the campfire site, making the total length of the trail 4.2 km. In winter, the car park may not be accessible because of snow.
