kierinniemi nature trail

The Kierinniemi Nature Trail meanders around a cape all but surrounded by a lake and includes information boards describing the history of the forest. You will find an old dead standing pine and moss-covered trenches along the trail. The trail provides hikers with some challenges too, as they will have to negotiate the occasional wind-felled tree and some variation in altitude.
