The route largely consists of narrow footpaths and carriage paths that run through forest mostly consisting of spruce trees. A short leg also runs along a dirt road. There is not much variation in terms of elevation, but the surfaces of the paths can sometimes be slightly challenging. The two rocky bits and one wetland section of the trail have been reinforced and levelled with gravel.
Savilahti Trail merges with the nature trails in the area (marked in yellow), which provide more route options. The nature trails are not maintained for mountain biking.
