The trail is primarily easy, but exposed rocks in some sections may be slippery in rainy weather. Gravel-covered sections of the trail can be fast and surprisingly slippery, so ride with care. This is a popular trail, particularly the stretch between Lampivaara and Luosto, where the trail is also used by hikers on foot. Bikers are required to slow down when encountering other trail users.
