Sippulannniemi Nature Trail in Kuokkala meanders 4 km through a varied forest landscape between the Ristikivi residential area and golf course. The wildlife along the path is rich with different habitats: moist spruce forests, mixed forests, rocky pine forests and alder-dominated herb-rich forests. There is also a large and diverse bird population in the area. The trail runs around Niemijärvi bog, with a small mire lake visible from the nature trail.
