New trails at Repovesi National Park
The northern part of Repovesi National Park has something new for hikers and especially for mountain bikers.
The Reporeitti route connecting Orilampi, the National Park and Mäntyharju, has now 8 kilometres of new trail. New connections, rest areas and signs have been built by Kymenlaakson virkistysalueyhdistys (Kyvi Association) throughout the summer and autumn.
The trail starts in Mouhu at Mäntyharju. At Haiminjärventie, next to Seppälä house, the road splits into two, one trail going to Orilampi Cottage and the other to Riutta.
New camp fire sites and toilets have been constructed to Murjanvuori and Pitkälampi. All signs along the route have also been updated.
Repovesi for Mountain Bikers
On your bike you can now pass longer trails and see various landscaped. The number of mountain bikers has grown considerably, that is why they have been in the focus when planning the route. The Reporeitti trail is 20,5 km long and when connected to the Repovesi National Park it's already ca. 40 km. Reporeitti trail joins the Repovesi trails on the north side of Olhava.
Please note, that cycling is only allowed on the trails marked for the purpose.
Are you already familiar with the Koppelonkierros trail? It is a circle trail of 8,3 km. It runs through landscapes of Tervajärvi lake, mighty cliffs and forests. Here you may see the bird that the trail was named after; the female capercaillie (in Finnish "koppelo").
