Keski-Penikka observation tower trail

Demanding but short track to the Keski-Penikka’s observation tower.
2km / one way

The Keski-Penikka observation tower trail is demanding but short, only 2 km to the observation tower atop Keski-Penikka hill. The track starts in Kivalo P-area.

The beginning of the trail is easy-to-walk road up the slope of Keski-Penikka hill. The last 0.5 km of the trail is a narrow, rocky path. Top of the Keski-Penikka hill is Kivalos wilderness hut and the observation tower. The route is marked with orange paint.

The hut is a popular hiking spot even in winter, so the trail is usually packed down for walking during snowy winters. The trail is not maintained, so if there has been a lot of snowfall, the trail may become blocked.

You can also detour in Kivalo’s jeager hut.
