Routes in the Kytäjä-Usmi Outdoor Recreation Area
West of Hyvinkää city centre lies the 20 km² outdoor recreation area, a part of which is a nature conservation area. Kytäjä-Usmi is perfect for people who enjoy long day trips or weekend-long hikes. The routes are also ideal for trail running. The area has six signposted hiking routes, five of which are ring routes. The lengths vary from the 6.1 km of the Haiskari route to the 19.8 km of the Seven Brothers route. You can reach the starting point of the Seven Brothers route by bus, so the route is easy to hike, for example, as a long one-day hike.
The routes have been classified as easy, medium or challenging. The routes run partly along forest motor roads, partly along paths. Along the route you can find maintained campfire sites and four lean-tos, swimming spots and areas suitable for tents.
