The off-road trail is intended for outdoor walking and mountain biking when there is no snow. The trail has an indicative direction of travel and the trail markings are set accordingly. However, be aware that there may be oncoming traffic on the trail. Dogs must be kept on a leash.Route direction signs and the markings on the trees are in blue.The trail mainly includes off-road paths, forest roads, paths next to railroad tracks, and transitions on pavements and streets. There are also main road crossings on the trail, so use caution.The terrain is very varied in terms of difficulty. The trail contains a few very challenging sections due to the steepness of the trail. Travel the trail at your own risk. Please note that there are roots, rocks and tree trunks on the path sections, which may be slippery when wet. The trail is available when there is no snow, as there is no winter maintenance.
The route also includes two technical tracks, in the sports park (Urheilukuja 1) and Marttinen (Herrasentie 16), where you can practice mountain biking skills.
The maintenance of the trail is the responsibility of the Town of Virrat, tel. +358 3 485 111
In summer, the fitness trails of the Pukkivuori area are used for hiking and disc golf. Pukkivuori Disc Golf Park is an 18-hole disc golf course, which runs over varied terrain, partly on a ski slope. In winter, the area has a network of cross-country ski trails of about 8 km, most of which are illuminated. The slopes of Pukkivuori are actively used by skiers in winter. The Pukkivuori hill can also be climbed via the 125-metre fitness stairs. From the top, you can admire the townscape that opens up.
