Geocache Description:

Mukava laavu puuhuollon piirissä. Nice lean-to shelter with maintained wood service.

Kätkö löytyy Hämeenkankaalta, joka sijaitsee Pohjois-Satakunnassa ja Pirkanmaan rajalla. Hämeenkankaalle on rakennettu noin 15 laavua ja 4 kotaa, joissa mahdollisuus jopa yöpyä. Laavuilla ja kodissa puuhuolto ja nuotiopaikat. Hämeenkangas kuuluu varuskunta-alueeseen, mutta siellä on kuitenkin vapaa liikkumisoikeus, läpiajo Niinisalon varuskunnan halki on kielletty.

Metlan luontopolku esittelee metsäntutkimustoimintaa, opasteet ovat Metsäntutkimuslaitoksen (Metla) Parkanon tutkimusaseman tekemiä. Polulla on kaksi eripituista reittivaihtoehtoa: lyhyempi lenkki, noin 3 km, haarautuu Sormelan laavulta pohjoiseen, pidempi lenkki, noin 5 km, kiertää Metlan laavun kautta. Lähtöpaikkana toimii Jämikeskus.

The cache can be found from Hämeenkankaa, which is located in the border of North Satakunta and Pirkanmaa. There are around 20 places where you can even stay a night and have a campfire.

Metla Nature Trail features forest research. The signs and markings along the trail were designed by the Forest Research Institute (Metla) research station in Parkano. There are two route options for the trail. The shorter circle trail is about 3 km long and turns north from Sormela lean-to shelter. The longer trail is about 5 km long and passes by Metla lean-to shelter. The process of designing and putting up new signposts and markings for the trail is now under way. Starting point: Jämi aviation and tourist centre
