The route is suitable for people of different age and physical condition. The exception is people for whom excessive physical strain is not recommended for medical reasons.
The trail is marked with signs. There is a shelter, a firewood shed, a trash bin, a toilet, a campfire site, information placards.
Excursion begins from the eastern end of lake Paanajarvi close to the outflow of Olanga river. The trail runs across one of the deepest lakes in Fennoscandia. There used to be dozens of Finnish farmsteads on the banks of Paanajarvi. In some places ruins of houses and utility buildings can be found still.
The lake is flanked by high fells Mutkatunturi (438 m) and Tirovaara (357 m). In the beginning of the trip one can easily distinguish a broad clearing on the shore which was the state border between Russia and Finland up to 1940.
Further on there is a site of the former Finnish farmstead Aarola. Some buildings have been restored there. One can read about the history of settlements on the shores of Paanajarvi and ways of country life in the 30s of the last century from the information boards.
One of the main landmarks on this route is the steep cliff of Ruskeakallio (the Red Rocks) rising to the height of 60 meters (14th km of the trail).
The ride ends at the foot of the never-freezing scenic Mjantjujoki waterfall that cascades down five steps from a 9-meter height. There used to be a water mill built by local people. A secondary school stood not far from the waterfall. The waterfall was always a major attraction for artists and photographers. It never fails to enrapture the visitors today too.
