kauhalammi trail 5,1 km

The Kauhalammin kierros hiking trail winds around a calm bird oasis of a wilderness character in the Kauhaneva-Pohjankangas National Park along Kyrönkankaan museotie, an old royal fairway. From the viewing tower at the border of a forest and a bog landscape, you can observe the life of a raised bog. On the duckboards, a sharp-eyed photograph always finds something interesting in the environment. For a picnic break, the hiker can choose a scenic spot either on the top of the view tower or by it, at the Salomaa campfire place or on the Kauhalampi pond. The summer trip is topped off by a jump off the pier in the refreshing water of Kauhalampi.
