Central Finland Provincial Trail covers a cross-country skiing and hiking trail from Saarijärvi to Kannonkoski leading through the Pyhä-Häkki National Park and nice rest places at lakes.  The trail is partly difficult to follow because of several forestry measures in the area. Part of it,  starting from Saarijärvi,  is a very popular cross-country ski trail in the winter season. The ski trail located on the side of Saarijärvi is being maintained buy the municipality.
