Additional information

The Kytäjä-Usmi area, of which Piilolammi is part, is an exceptionally large forested area in southern Finland. The area is typified by small lakes, steep cliffs, and narrow passes. The area is situated in an ancient volcano crater and the gabbro is characteristic of this kind of terrain. This ‘black granite’ is used in gravestones and buildings and one of the many quarries on the area can be found on the eastern shore of Piilolammi. Part of the Kytäjä-Usmi area is under nature conservation.
