Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A beautiful 1.2 km trail with a sobering history along the northern end of the Salpalinja, a massive undertaking after the Winter War to build an anti-tank defence line of huge boulders. Along the trail there are couple of restored look-outs/guard posts. In autumn, the colours of the wetlands/forest scenery were lovely. Some of the boards on the boardwalk were not in the best condition, so in wet weather it could be a bit challenging. There are also beautiful views over the lake Sarvilampi from the bird observation tower close to the carpark across the trail.
