Tärttämäki lookout spot is one of the highest places in the region with a stunning view over Keitele, Tärttälahti in Kuhnamo and all the way to the city of Äänekoski. Tärttämäki rises 100 meters above the lake Kuhnamonjärvi right next to it so the landscape is really beautiful.
On top of Tärttämäki, there’s a lookout spot where you can admire the panoramic view. You can locate the spot by passing the radio mast. On top of the hill, there is also a bird tower, but the trees surrounding it are so tall and lush that visibility is somewhat reduced.
You can walk or cycle to the top of Tärttämäki. The path to the first lookout spot is easy, but shorter paths on top of the hill are more challenging. The best way to explore the trails is on foot. You can arrive in Tärttämäki also by car, but you need to leave it at a crossroads, at least half a kilometer before the top. You will find the place by looking for a No entry sign. You can reach the top of the hill on foot or by bike by following the road that goes uphill towards the No entry sign.
Tärttämäki is easy to find from both Jyväskylä and Äänekoski – take a look at the map here.
It is important to remember that the roads and paths in Tärttämäki are not maintained in the winter. When it’s wet, the rocks can get very slippery so you need to be cautious if it is raining or wet weather.
