Sorlampi nature trail in Espoo

Sorlampi nature trail in Espoo is about 5,5 kilometers long. Good place to start is the parking place of Nuuksionmaja if arriving by your car. The circle trail starts from the local road nearby. I walked past lake Hakjärvi and started my walk near the lake and walked the trail counterwise.

The trail goes partly in the protected area and past lake Sorlampi. It is close to Nuuksio national park and offers partly similar terrain and nature and seemed to be more peaceful at October weekend than Nuuksio np. The few people seen were cross country runners and mushroom pickers. If looking for longer trails you can easily reach Pirttimäki or Karjakaivo recreation areas.
