Aurinko-Ilves is a lovely connection trail leading from the beautiful Vääksy Canal area through paths, forest tracks and old forest roads to the large forests and extensive trail network of the Evo Hiking Area. The scenery along the trail range from esker forest in Aurinkovuori to spectacular lake views, and the charming Kurhila village. When approaching to Evo, the murmuring forest brooks create a lovely backdrop for the walk.
After departure from the Vääksy Sports Centre, the trail climbs steeply to the Aurinkovuori hill (“Sun Mountain”). Close to the starting point, the Aurinkovuori lean-to and lookout spot offer a great view over Lake Päijänne. The total length of the trail is 31 km.
