"Hiking Petkeljärvi National Park --- Part 3" Petkeljärvi Travelogue by gubbi1

Petkeljärvi Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 27 photos

So we cross now the swamp on duckboards and then...

... head into the forest.

At some places in the park you will find these kind of holes in the forest floor. They are pretty large and hope you can see them on the photo. During rep. just after the ice-age material collected around large blocks of ice. When they finally melted, these holes remained.

Just shortly after the hole a sign informs that there was a horse staple here during the war periode. Standing there you can see where it must have been, even though it is quite tough.

Suddenly you will pass the crossing to the Kuikkankierros. If you like it here and you have time, don't hesitate. Let me know how you liked it!

I instead head forward through the forest.

With some ups and downs I slowly reach the crossing at which I had been before.

But before you will pass this interesting tree, if it was not crashing down before.

I hope you liked the hike and that you will do it yourself some time.
