Walks in Kivinokka recreation area, Helsinki

Kivinokka recreation area is a few kilometers away from Helsinki city center. It is surrounded by the sea bay of Vanhankaupunginselkä and has fine untouched piece of forest, nature trail, bird watching tower, hundreds of tiny summer cottages and beaches. There are even important geologic potholes (hiidenkirnu) hidden in the forest.

Kivinokka has a long and rich history. Helsinki residents can enjoy their summer huts arriving laid back way by bikes. In summer there is a nice cafe with art around and varying domestic animals nearby (one year goats, this year is to be seen). The nature trail is specially designed for the disabled and visually impaired.
