This stunning ring trail is about 13 km long and can be hiked in both directions. Clockwise, the path is a little easier to follow. You can choose from three short ring trails if you don’t want to walk the whole trail (Kitula trail 3 km, Kaivanto trail 4 km, and Kotkatsaari trail 2.8 km). The route is marked with paint markers in the trees and signposted with metal signs. Along the trail is the stylish Norppa hut, where you can grill sausages during your hike. In addition, there are Saimaa Geopark guide signs along the route telling you about the geological history of the area.
Loketon Onkalo is a mysterious gorge about 70 m long, shaded by rock walls, near Pistohiekka. The trail is about 1.5 km long and can be hiked through a gorge to a rock top picnic area. The route is partly difficult terrain due to ladders and a path on a rocky slope (supported by a rope handrail).
