From the trail, there is a connection to most of the Pyhä-Luosto day trip trails. See map for more information on trails.
The hiking trail follows the fell chain between Pyhä and Luosto skiing resorts. You can start the hike at either end. There is bus and taxi connecting Pyhä and Luosto. Parts of the trail are narrow and rocky, at times hiking trail follows a wider cross-country skiing track base or goes along a gravel trail suitable also for mountain biking. There is a 75-metre-section of steel duckboards when heading to the south from the Pyhälampi camfire site. Dogs can fairly easily run alongside these duckboards. There are bridges over rivers or streams and stairs at Luosto and Isokuru gorge. There are natural water points at Pyhälampi, Kapusta, Huttuloma and Karhunjuomalampi day huts and campfire sites. Water from these sources needs to be boiled before use. In the near vicinity of Huttuloma, there is household water well at Huttujärvi rental hut and the water from this source is drinkable without boiling. Note that day huts are not meant for staying over night. The trail can be done in one day (light pack), in two days or three days.
Along the trail, you will experience round, bare felltops with great views over the area, rugged gorges, old-growth forest, and a number of geological and historical sites. Siberian jay may come to greet you and you will share trail with reindeer. On the trail you can also experience true silence.
