Kotkansaarelta alkava reitti Valkmusan kansallispuiston päivätuvalle. Polku on varsinkin syksyllä ja keväällä monessa kohtaa melko pehmeää mutaa ja vettä (ajettavissa kuitenkin), mutta vähäsateisina kesinä lähes kuivaa polkua. Päällystettyä tietä matkan varrella ajetaan melko vähän, lähinnä siltojen ylityskohdissa. (noin 2km) Hiekkatietäkin ajetaan vain nimeksi ja lähinnä loppupäässä reittiä. Reittiä ei ole merkitty maastoon millään lailla ja ajettavat polut ovat usein vaikeasti havaittavissa. On lähes välttämätöntä, että pyörässä on jatkuvasti näkyvillä oleva navigointilaite, jotta polulta ei eksy. Reitti alkaa isolta ilmaiselta paikoitusalueelta, joten autolle ei tarvitse erikseen etsiä parkkipaikkaa.

From Kotkansaari to Valkmusa national park. Trail is very wet on spring and fall. On summer trail is almost dry and fun to ride. There isn't much tarmac road. About 1.5 miles. There are some gravel roads but not too many. There are no markings along the trail so you have to have some kind of navigation device (and attachet to steering bar if possible) because some of the turns aren't very visible. Route starts at large free parking lot.
