Easy to reach forest park from Espoo. Lovely walking trails, plenty to see and do. Beautiful lake with grills which we took advantage of. Beautifully maintained and very clean. Lots of room so we didn't felt as it was crowded. Would be amazing with the snow in the winter season.

Pretty seclusive forest park close by to Espoo.
Easy to reach by public transportation, for example, train+bus from Helsinki centre. You can be a part of the guided group, but you can make it also by yourself as the walking paths are marked well, and you don't need any special skills to make the journey.
There are a couple of small lakes-ponds which you can investigate by the hiring a boat and also swim in the bigger lake Siikajärvi.
In the summertime, you might have a chance to collect some forest berries, Nam!
There are fewer people at working days.

We went there by bus (245A) on a sunny day in late September for a hiking trip. We started in Kattila and followed the trail to Haltia (about 9 km). The trail was clearly marked. The scenery was absolutely stunning - the forest all dressed in fall colors and lakes with crystal clear water. Don't forget to bring a bag for your trash, as there are no trash bins to be found.

This is the place where people from Espoo and Helsinki go hiking and relaxing in the nature. Hardly any capital has such nature treasure so close. Beautiful lakes for swimming or canoeing or fishing, forests, hiking, camping, picking wild berries or mushrooms. One of my favourite places in all Finland. Sometimes Haltia area can get a bit crowded but there are many areas where there are never too many people like Kattila which also can be reached by bus. Highly recommended for all nature lovers who don’t want to travel far from Helsinki area.

Nature there is beautiful, there are plenty of marked and taken care of trails and, best of all, is rather easily accessible by public transport! (although it might be a bit long to reach, reserve about 1h40mins per way from the central railway station in Helsinki). Nevertheless, it is totally worth visiting and spending as long as possible there. There is a skiing court as well, but did not have the chance to try it out..yet.

Great place for hiking, you wouldn’t believe that you’re under an hour by car from downtown Helsinki. Lots of marked paths and very beautiful nature.

The forests in Finland as they are in many other northern hemisphere regions are chock a block with goodies from August to September. Pick bilberries in August-September, mushrooms from September to October, lingonberries about the same time and get plenty of fresh air, exercise and peace for your soul amidst the majestic calm of Nuuksio forest. And even if it's too early or late or you don't fancy picking anything, just breathing in that fresh earthy smell of the forest surrounding you amid a soft stillness beyond the occasional chirp or scuttering of a squirrel, nothing beats being in a forest for just an hour or a full day.

Beautiful forest and lake. It looks like huge mirror reflecting blue sky and white clouds.
I also enjoyed fly fishing.
