Trail description

For a long time mountain biking on Puijo hill has been forbidden because of the natural reservation, which covers most of the area. However, since autumn 2018 some of the local trails have been marked as official MTB trails and riders can enjoy the elevation changes offered by the hill, sitting 260m above the sea level.

Trails on Puijo can be approached in different ways, but we like to split them into 3 trails, 2 of them being downhill trails leading from the tower down to the stadium and the longest one gently descending towards the Puijonsarvi. At the end of the longest trail is situated an epic fireplace Puijonnokka with absolutely fabulous sceneries viewable from elevated place like in a cinema and for free unlike the views from the Puijo tower.

There are parking places available on the top of the hill, at the stadium or at Puijonsarvi. All free of charge.
