The trail may be muddy in some places, depending on the season. So it's advisable to wear weather-appropriate clothing.

The stream that flows into Bodom Lake is called Oitåns creek, I believe. Later, it becomes Gloms river, and then Espoo river.

Next, the route crosses Kunnarlantie road. After that, there is a short distance of boardwalks, and we move from a deciduous forest to a spruce forest.
