Kuninkaanpolku Trail can be started from the Linna Hotel or Itä-HämeMuseum. When starting from the Linna Hotel, the first section of thetrail passes lovely old buildings belonging to the folk high schoolItä-Hämeen opisto. From there, the trail follows an idyllic countryroad towards the arched bridge crossing the pristine Ekonkoski rapidsin River Tainionvirta. After the bridge, the trail continues alongthe road until it turns right into the forest. The path leading throughthe forest is clearly marked. The landscape consists of peatland forest,and you can give your feet a soothing peat treatment if you wish.After the forest section, the trail follows a field to the sports ground,from where a suspended bridge across River Tainionvirta leads tothe beautiful surroundings of Itä-Häme Museum. After the museum,the trail continues to the old Hartola Church monument and makesone more turn towards the river before leading to the Kaikulantieroad and back to the starting point along a lovely birch path.
The trail consists of paths, dirt roads and pedestrian routes, and is veryeasy to walk. The hardest sections are between Ekonkoski rapids andthe sports grounds, where the path leads through fairly damp swampterrain. For this reason, waterproof shoes are recommended, unless theweather has been very dry.
