The Partiomaja Trail is a 2 km circular forest route that follows the rapids route of Konnevesi through Taikinainen and Karinkoski ending up in Partiomaja. The rapids remain free of ice, even in the winter, and therefore Partiomaja Trail is of great interest throughout the year. Keep warm by a campfire and enjoy watching the flowing water. The route and the structures have been improved over the past few years and the repair work continued in 2016.
