March 2019. We could not believe what an amazing trail this was, especially for the many feet of snow on the ground! We packed snowshoes and saw people in snowshoes, but the trail was so well packed, we didn’t need them! Just really good, waterproof hiking boots! We wore snow pants and may layers and definitely peeled some top layers off but thankful for snow pants. This is a gorgeous trail with only a few intense uphill areas. The trickiest part (in winter) are some of the stairs that have iced over. Be sure to take it slow and hold the ropes and be considerate of others nearby. The many miles in the snow definitely exhausted us in the best, most refreshing way possible. The scenery is so beautiful and peaceful and seeing the river breaking through the ice was magical. Posting a map photo that can show parking options. Highly recommend.

Beautiful trail, wish I could have spent more time hiking in the area.

One of the best trails in Southern Finland not many people know of

It is an interesting concept to hike from the center of the capital city and make a hike to a National Park and come back. The trail is mostly pleasant stroll and easy terrain to walk. Trail markings are a very big problem. They are often missing or difficult to detect. Also in so many crossroads there is no sign which way to go. You will need this application or other map resourced to be sure which way to go. Even in this recording there is one small mistake. The trail goes slightly different way in Lahnus.

Superb. No wonder this is the most trafficked trail in Finland. Very few people in late February. With mild +4C and mostly sunny the conditions were ideal.

We hiked the entire karhunkierros trail. It was amazing. Finland takes very good care of it’s natural areas. I loved the firepits, shelters, and swimming areas at every stop! What a great 82 kms.
