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.

Easy hike that is well marked. Picked blueberries and lingonberries along the trail. Pretty heavily trafficked with some nice scenic views. Easy trail to get to using public transportation from Helsinki. At the trailhead there is a small cafe, free bathrooms and water.

Relatively easy, some sandy parts were required a bit more concentration than the rest of the trail. Stairs were under renovation and not in use.

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

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.
