Hiking, running & nature trails
Ruokolahti is a top destination for hikers. There are tracks and nature paths from under 1 km long to over 70 km long. Most are suitable for cycling, trail running as well as hiking.
Ruokolahti hiking trails offer varied landscapes across ridges, hills and along several scenic lakes. The main Ruokolahti hiking trails consist of two loops that can be combined into a 40 km long circuit. Then there's the Ruokolahti - Rautjärvi -route, which is a part og the wider E10 -trail system.
Hukkavuori [Wolf Hill] and Haukkavuori [Hawk Hill] are both located in the northern part of Ruokolahti. The exotic and fun trails at Hukkavuori are an experience for hikers and families with children.
Haukkavuori is the highest point in South Karelia and from there you have a really nice view of lake Sarajärvi, as well as a connection to the E10 -hiking trails.
