Nyrölä Nature Trail


Nyrölä Nature Trail runs through a varied forest landscape and on the marshy shores of Lake Iso-Musta. The trail also runs past the artificial pond of Saparo. The nature trail is 3.6 km long, and its high point is an island with a lean-to shelter, which can be reached by crossing the dark waters of Iso-Musta via a cable ferry.
