Peräkorpi spruce mire (Lauhanvuori)
The trail from Spitaalijärvi to Kivijata goes through a Spruce mire at Peräkorpi. Spruce mires occur along streams and in the margins of large open mires. In Peräkorpi, spruce mire has developed along the headwaters of the Lohiluoma stream, which gets its water from springs situated at the margin of the mire. Signs of human activity can be seen as old forest ditches, but nature is slowly recovering from this past draining project.
