Walk the trail in the middle of forest to the Lake Saimaa shoreline. There you can calm down to admire the art of our ancestors in the rock wall. The painting is 135 x 345cm and its vibrant red ochre colour has been preserved exceptionally well. The painting dates to 4,700-3,700 years ago during the period following the Greater Saimaa stage. There is a Saimaa Geopark sign at the parking area. Another sign is on the shore, near the rock painting.
As you walk along the path, beware of the bumps and roots of the path. There is a wooden viewing platform built on the shore to view the rock painting. The viewing platform can be slippery in the rain.
