The small town of Juuma is situated close to one of the nicer sections of the
Karhunkierros trail. This can be walked as a day hike, called
Pieni Karhunkierros ("The Little Bear's Ring") and unlike the real
Karhunkierros this actually is a circular trail.
It will lead you past Myllykoski rapids and the spectacular Jyrävä
waterfall and some very beautiful views.
I decided to walk this trail in one day as a final test before going on to the
real Karhunkierros, and I enjoyed it immensely. And again I met some very
nice people on the way.
