Here you can find the biggest cave in the Ural region - "Druzhba", and also some other famous caves: Arakaevskaya, Katnikovskaya, Bolshoy Proval and Lednik.
Physically and geographically the area looks like a border zone between the low-mountain landscapes of Sredneuralskaya taiga and the forest steppe Krasnoufimskaya. Landscape diversity, low level of industrial pollution and economic development in this territory predetermine the extremely rich species composition of flora and fauna. Here are also well represented different relic and endemic species. In the park there are a lot of coniferous and broadleaf forests. The Sergi valley since ancient times has been inhabited by people, as evidenced by numerous archaeological objects.
The most popular paintings are on the rock "Pisanitsa". There are 22 famous and interesting objects in the park, which have the status of natural landmark. The terrain is typical for the Middle Urals. The average height is 300-500 meters above the sea level. The relief is low-hilled, with the hills height several tens of meters. The most popular are rock-outcrops along the river banks Sergi, reaching a height of 40 m. The climate is quite comfortable for practicing sports tourism during all year and also for summer activities. In order to preserve the nature of the park the whole territory is divided into several security zones. There is also a reserved area, with access only for scientists.
There are also routes developed with guides - the so-called "educational paths". Educational paths have very important cognitive and nature conservation value.

The sculpture Angel of Hope was established on the 17 September in 2005. The author of the project is Lena Edval (she is from Sweden). Seven monuments of the Angel are established all over the world. And one is located in Russia in the park Oleni Ruchi. From the sculpture begins a walking path along a winding bank of the river Sergi. The name of the path is Magistral Posta. Built in 1998 by public fund "Oleni Ruchi" on donations of U.S. citizen Robert Lent. The conclusion is the following - Russia is a very poor country and foreigners like it more than russians.
