Vuoksenniska is part of the First Salpausselkä, where the Vuoksi outlet channel broke through 5,700 years ago as a result of the Greater Saimaa flood. In the Imatra region, the First Salpausselkä is between 1-2 kilometres wide due to the long deposition time of 200 years, during which time the ice edge also had time to move. The network of paths in the area lead hikers to a delta plain dotted with a few kettles in its southern parts. Typical features of end moraine ridges can also be seen along the path: on the ice-sheet side to the northwest, the sides of the ridges are long and gentle, while the southeastern sides are steep, often with lots of boulders.
