I hiked this in June 2018 (Summer) with little/no experience in hiking. Awesome trip up the mountain with stairs all along the route until the summit walk, which is via cable fence. Can either return via the same route or an alternate way to the nearest train station. The views are the best you can get in Seoul and I would recommend this to anyone who is there for more than 4 days. It's absolutely stunning! During summer I would recommend bringing lots of water and some snacks to combat the high temperature and humidity. Additionally some elementary fitness is recommended as although there's no scrambling, there's a lot of steep stairs. There's not many restrooms on the route so make sure you go beforehand!

First hiking experience. The reason i fell in love with mountains!

Definitely a hard hike. Very nice view of the entire city on the top of the peak.

Great hike but pretty strenuous and steep. We took the subway to the last station on the UI line. We hiked from there to Baekundae peak. There was a small store with picnic tables that we stopped at for lunch. The hike to the top is on bare rock with cables to help you along. We hiked down a different way which was more in the forest and followed a river to the bottom. This park reminded me of Yosemite National Park in the US with its huge rock formations, trees, and rivers. I would definitely do this again. Probably not a great hike for young kids or those who are not in shape.

My wife and I had a great time, even it is a rocky and tough mountain to climb. The summit, Shinsundae, has a great view and there are several other summits near by. You can find many different hiking routes and they are all good. One thing I don't like was air quaility, which gives a limited air view. Except that, it was very good and tough hiking. We would like to do it again with a different route.

Very fun and challenging hike, the view is worth the incline!

I did this hike on a frigid day in late January. I hiked it together with a Korean lady I met on the subway, who was also headed for 북한산. Don't imagine for a moment that this hike is anything but challenging. Ignore the distance stated on All Trails. My pedometer tracked over 5 miles. Ignore that as well! This is a steep hike up the mountain and then down again. Do you love stairs? Then this hike is for you. The views from the top were incredible. This is by far one of the best hikes I have ever done in Korea.

not sure what the "dobangson peak" review is about. to my knowledge, the trail outlined on this map is the one going to jaunbong which is dobangson peak. any how, as is mentioned on other reviews this is HEAVILY trafficked. with a city of 10 million people and this well maintained trail with beautiful views i guess its no suprise. last 0.5 km is very vertical. but there are convenient rails and steps placed strategically to make this section very managable. its is crazy windy at the peak so hold on to your hat!

Great hike, lots of traffic though.

For only being 2.8 miles this was a very hard hike. It was like going upstairs almost the whole way.... Literally there are tons of stairs. it felt like it would never end but it was so awesome. And it is really cool to go down the other side of the mountain instead of going back down the way you came. Not sure if that made it longer or shorter to go down that way.
