Destination information

The top of the cliff features a 30-metre tunnel with two entrances. The western slope has two caves excavated into the rock. From the caves starts a seven-metre deep, breathtakingly narrow gorge excavated into the bedrock, whose width in places is just over a metre. Rocks may fall off the ceiling in the caves and the trenches, so you must not go in them. The structures are protected by the Antiquities Act.

Many paths criss-cross the Mustavuori area, and when there is plenty of snow, the City of Helsinki maintains cross-country skiing tracks there. Up-to-date information of the condition of the cross-country skiing tracks.


Mustavuori trail: The forest trail is 2.5 km long. The route has not been marked in the forest. The mobile map and nature trail signposts are available at the Citynature website. The route travels partly on a wide leisure trail, but in the forest, the path is narrow in places, so it cannot be accessed with a pushchair.

Remember to take care close to the caves and gorges because there are no railings. Rocks may fall off the ceilings of the caves and the trenches, so you must not go in them. Everyone explores the area at their own risk. You must not allow children to venture beyond the path on their own close to the caves.


The area is not accessible, but the routes are easy to walk.
