Geocache Description:

Helposti löydettävä kotakätkö

Urkin poloku kulkee vaihtelevassa maastossa ja maisemassa vanhoja kirkko- ja kalapolkuja, ajouria ja kyläteitä pitkin. Matkan varrelle osuu suojelualueita, järvimaisemia, harjuselänteitä ja kyläasutusta.
Urkin poloku on nimetty Pielavedellä syntyneen presidentti Urho Kaleva Kekkosen eli "Urkin" mukaan.
Reitti lähtee presidentin syntymämökin Lepikon torpan nurkalta (tai jo kirkonkylältä 7 km aikaisemmin). Torppa on kesäisin auki, samoin samassa pihapiirissä oleva kahvila-ravintola.
Reitti päättyy Suomen korkeimman kosken Korkeakosken partaalle. Polku sopii patikointiin ja osittain maastopyöräilyyn. Pituus n. 25 km.
Lähde: Pohjois-savon opaskartta

Polun varrella on kota, jossa kätkö sijaitsee. Autolta kävelymatkaa tulee kolmisensataa metriä.

__________________________________________________

The Urkin poloku trail passes through diverse terrain and scenery along old parish and fishermen's paths, carriageways and village roads. Along the route, there are protected areas, lake views, ridges and populated villages.The route has been marked in the terrain with blue paint and guide signs. The trail is suitable for hiking and, in parts, for mountain biking. The trail is approximately 25 kilometres long and easy to hike.
Urkin poloku has been named according to a former president of Finland, President Urho Kaleva Kekkonen, who was often called by the familiar name of Urkki. He was born in Pielavesi. The route starts from the corner of the Lepikko croft in which the president was born. The croft is open during the summer, as is the café-restaurant in the same complex.
