Trail description

Trails in Central Karelia are managed by organization Karelianpolut and in Tohmajärvi you will find 3 official trails for outdoor acivities including mountain biking plus 2 natural trails with slightly higher difficulty for mountain biking. Trails in Tohmajärvi are perfectly marked by dots on trees or wooden poles and trail facilities offer cafés and toilets at the start of these trails and drinking water supplies along the way. Southern part of the green Kirkkoniemi trail also features a beach, where you can cool down before heading to the second half of the loop.

Starting point for trails in Tohmajärvi is at the sports stadium and if you indeed start from there, you will go through all 3 trails. Starting with the red 7,5km long Pekan trail through the blue 3km long Piilovaara trail and finishing at the green 5km long Kirkkoniemi trail passing by the beach in the South of the trail site. Sadly all 3 trails have a very high concentration of wide fitness tracks and lack some serious singletrack action. Best singletrack riding can be found on the green Kirkkoniemi trail.
