The Oravivuori trail leads to the top of Oravivuori hill in Korpilahti’s Puolakka, where one of the survey points of the famous Struve Geodetic Arc, part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, is located. The impressive triangulation tower on the summit of the hill is a sign of the significance of Oravivuori, and Puolakka measuring station, in the mapping of Finland. The path leading to the top of Oravivuori is about 1 km long and the rocky slope is quite steep in places. The views from the triangulation tower out over Lake Päijänne are beautiful.
The starting point and the parking lot are located on Vanhanpääntie road and they are accessible by car or taxi. However, the possibilities for parking are limited. Get more information of the local taxi company JYTAKSI. You can check the fixed taxi prices here.
