Turn-by-turn directions

Drive through the center of Jämijärvi on the pedestrian/cycle lane to the Jämi junction. Turn left and continue on the paved road towards Ikaalinen. After about 6 km, turn right onto Pitkäniementie. Continue on the gravel road for about 5 km and turn right onto Mielahdentie.

Continue on Mielahdentie for about 2 km, at which point there are  road signs to the right to Uhrilähde spring. After visiting the springs, continue towards Jämijärvi for about 1.5 km. At the intersection of Jämi, permanent paving begins again; to the left it is possible to deviate from Jämi tourist center, the route continues straight. About 3.5 km away the route turns left onto Vihuntie; by continuing directly it is possible to halve the route and return to the starting point in the center of Jämijärvi.
