The trail runs along idyllic village roads and also differs from beautiful lakeside landscapes. The terrain is marked with blue poles. There are six signposts along the path that tell you about the history of the area. History of sawmill and Salpa Line are impressive and worth exploring. There are also tables showing plant, animal and fungal species along the trail. Teaching boards combined with species found in the terrain also make Rutola village poles a good hiking and learning destination. Along the trail, there are two Salpa Line bunkers to explore.
