jyllinkoski nature trail

The Jyllinkoski Nature Trail combines nature and history of electricity production in a fascinating way. Lush groves with demanding plants thrive in the steepbanked river valley in the middle of the South Ostrobothnian fieldscape.  As a large dam in the River Kyrönjoki, Jyllinkoski also represents the history and present of South Ostrobothnian river construction. Along the nature trail leading to Kiskonniemi, you see rich nature and a lush riverbank forest.  The atmosphere of Jyllinkoski is comprised of varying terrain, lush forests, quiet backwaters, and fierce roar of the rapids.
