I found on a map that there is a very small circular hiking trail in the Evo Hiking Area. It basically follows a little stream for a few hundred meters and then after crossing a bridge it returns back to the parking. As I had time and was curious I stopped at the parking along road 53 just north of Evokeskus and prepared myself for the short round. The first hundred meters were pretty wet ground and I had to find good steps not to have water in the shoes, but then I could enjoy the beautiful dense forest. The trail features that little stream that we follow. As far as I could see on a sign the stream was prepared with obstacles to reduce the speed of the water. If someone knows details, let me know. Anyhow I loved the nature as it was clear to see that the flora adapted to this pretty wet environment giving the feeling as walking in a rain forest.
Luontopolku means nature trail, so we know where to go…
Hard to see but after entering the more dense forest the ground was pretty wet. Anyhow no issues with wet feet.
After a short while we already arrive at the first bridge that we need to cross. From here on we are following the stream.
As you see it is not very big and hardly flowing. I am sure with the melting of the snow in spring the situation is much different.
The sign from which I interprete the adjustments in the stream…
…and how it looks in real.
Whatever it means I enjoyed the nature. It is very calm out here.
We already have reached the farest part of the hike… the bridge leading us back to the side of the parking. Still we have to walk back.
Some more picture of the second bridge and the view from it over the stream.
While standing on the bridge this fern was lightend by the sun while most of the rest was in shadow. It is a pitty that reality always looks better than picture. But I hope you get the point.
Hope you liked this little tour.
