Paimio trail, Lampipolku trail and Helmi MTB
The 18 km long Paimio trail winds through varied terrain and landscapes. On this 50-year-old hiking trail you can enjoy handsome rocky areas, idyllic rural landscapes and large ponds formed in an old sand pit area.
The Paimio trail can be reached by hiking and mountain biking, but cycling south of the 110 road is not recommended due to the demanding terrain. The use of electric mountain bikes is prohibited on the Paimio trail south of the 110 road.
The Paimio path is also bypassed by the new Lampipolku route, which starts from Hiekkahelmi (swimming pond). This 2.5 km long cycling and hiking route offers two straightening options for the Paimio trail.
When leaving the sports park, the Paimio trail also has the possibility to walk shorter lighted routes (3 km and 6.3 km).
It is a good idea to schedule these routes for spring, summer or autumn, as they are the best and safest seasons to admire the scenery. In winter, these routes are maintained by tamping, making them suitable for mountain biking and hiking. In winter, the Rivonmäki route of the Paimio trail is used by skiers, in which case walking on this section is prohibited.
Helmi MTB is a new mountain bike route (opened on May 2022). In the first phase, a 6 km demanding and 3 km easier route will be used, as well as a short track of approx. 300 m. More information on the website of the city of Paimio.
