Soyosan is a heavily traveled trail close to Dongducheon. It is a moderate to difficult trail based on the increase in elevation and endless flight of stairs. The view from the the top of mountain is great. Recommended gear to bring a backpack, water bottle, a snack, sweater or jacket (depending on the time of the year). There is a small entrance fee at the base along with shops and places to eat. There are signs located along the trail to guide you. Overall Soyosan is easily accessible, well marked, and well maintained. I would recommend
excellent trail! walked there from Osan Air Base. it was a little tough finding the entrance. but once we got on the trail everything was fine. there was plenty of splits on the path where you can choose the tough way or the easy way. once we made it to the end, the view wasn't bad. on the way back we decided to take another route and got a little lost, so the signs could have been a little easier to understand.. but maybe that's the american in me. all in all.. GREAT TRAIL
