Why you should visit it
In snowless time, it is easy to get to Pahkakuru by car. From Taivalkoski, drive about 10 kilometers towards Oulu, you will come to a junction with a sign to the right, Pahkakuru. You can leave your car in the parking area. From the parking lot, walk about 1 mile to the shed. Signs have fallen in many places. It is good to have a map with you.
Opposite the parking lot is a forest road track, following which you will find the end of the path.
