I am writing this review, as I do this hike. It is freezing cold today. I think I’d rather be sitting in Starbucks, drinking a latte.

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.

Difficult trail but absolutely beautiful. Definitely start early if you plan on going to the summit.

nice trail for beginners/families, beautiful coastal view, some steep and slippery surfaces, hiking shoes are a must.

beautiful landscape, well maintained trails, I highly recommend to bring a walking stick and stretch lower limbs, you will be doing a bunch of high stepping on uneven terrain uphill. Super friendly people.

Short but challenging hike/climb. Lots of fighting positions to see along the way. Definitely worth the view on a clear day.

This hike was amazing! When we arrived at the very first fork in the trail, right after the signs, we decided to go left. This brought us up and up and up to some amazing views. This was a bit hard for me since I’ve gotten out of shape recently but would have been a breeze if I had been staying moderately active at the time. We brought our two dogs- one large and one small- and they had an easy time keeping up, however, the small one had trouble walking on the rocks at the beach. All in all a great hike.

Easy to access from the train station and had multiple paths to descend the top! We went down by Seoul National University so we could have new views on the way down. Heavily trafficked, but beautiful views and well maintained. Hand rails or ropes and curated stairs make for a safe walk up to the temple at the top!

Descending Eorimok trail was rocky, be prepared! Otherwise, hike was great!

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!

Cables and smooth rocks on the trail to the top. Excellent views!! Headed south trail was the best way down.

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.

It continues to be one of my favorite hikes in Korea. It is a moderate hike with the greatest level of effort coming at the end as the trail turns to steps when you hit the summit. But the views make any amount of effort worth it. You cannot pass up this hike if you are in Seoraksan.

Been running and biking these trails for 2 years. Biking is better on weekdays or US holidays; weekends and SK holidays bring large numbers of hikers. Trail forks usually head down towards communities and roads, check KAKAO map app for these trails. There are many miles trails just to the east of this system, a huge 19 mile loop, with about 3 miles of farm road connections.

Really wonderful hike. I am relatively in shape and it wasn’t that difficult it there were parts that were challenging. If you take it slow you can totally do it and it is very much worth it!
