HikingGreat!

Great trail for trail running and family hikes. Lots of places to stop with gazebos and workout equipment. Beautiful scenery. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars is the lack of majestic views. Will definitely be back!

Incredible hike. The waterfall that follows you up most of the trail was a really nice addition. The trail was fairly moderate.

Great trail running and hiking. There is a big fork by the first sign, go left for elevation, go right for a smaller trail that leads around the mountains. Throughout the hike there are forks at every hill, one leads to the top of each hill, the other is easier with less elevation. Take the harder option to avoid people. Good for kids and pets, but watch out for mountain bikers when you get past the land bridge over the highway.

The trail was decent, with some steep areas, but plenty of level areas of you need to catch your breath. Comfortable for everyone in our party; our fur-baby loved it! The day wasn’t hot so great hike all-round

Whew! Incline incline incline but it was worth it trails are thin so prepare to share the trails with incoming traffic hikers.

A quick hike that will let you see both sides of the island. Good for families. Nice views on each side.

The trail is mostly built out with stone steps, staircases, and bridges. The view at the top is gorgeous!

Great hike, mostly stairs all the way up but beautiful surroundings. The summit is incredible. Make sure you spend an extra hour hiking around the top exploring the area.

A fairly easy trail. The first half or so was all well maintained path so rather easy. It only gets challenging if you go off path to get to some of the rocky peaks. Great views of Seoul, Sadang etc.

This review is for a smaller interval of the full Buraksan Hike: I did this 1.5 mile (3 miles out-and-back) hike from Buraksan K2 to Buraksan Mountain Forest Experience Center (Obstacle Course) over rolling terrain. The Experience Center costs between 4,000-6,000 won and has two large (free) parking lots. I started near K2 since it’s closer to my house, but commuters would be well advised to park near the Experience center.

Went on a clear day and the view of Seoul was excellent. Not a really difficult hike, more or less a staircase all the way up. The temple near the top is awesome as well

The view is phenomenal on the way up and coming down was vas very peaceful with the sound of the stream. It took us 4h30 to do the whole trail with many short stops and a long stop at the summit.

VERY EASY TO FIND ON WAZE. Nice casual trail if you are looking to spend some time in nature while staying local to the Camp Humphreys/ Osan area. If you park in the lot you might have to pay, they only accept card, but if you drive a little pass the lot you can see where tons of people just park on the street to avoid paying. The trail was a little crowded but everyone was respectful and moved out of the way if I was going faster than them. If you bring your dog I have a few tips: 1. The trail gets pretty tight in some places so pay attention to if anyone is coming. Most people when they see you have a dog will move over and wait for you to pass but some did not. 2. Bring plenty of poop bags! Also bring something to throw them out in because I could not find any trash cans along the route so I ended up having to carry bags of poo by hand. For some reason my dog always wants to go before we get a half mile in so I ended up carrying poop for 90 percent of the hike! Like I said good casual place if you are looking to get in the woods for a bit but the views were not really all that

Favorite hike in Seoul. Multiple routes to ascend and descend at Seoul National, Sadang and Gwacheon. Enjoy a bottle of makgeolli at the summit!~

Good hike for conditioning. It's fairly steep in the beginning but once you get on the top you pretty much weave up and down along the ridge. Stay on the paths and the bugs won't bother you that much but there are still the annoying few that buzz around. There's also the biggest outdoor gym I've ever seen here!

Today I have started from Dongpyeon-maul apartment complex 4 and reached at Gwansang-water spring which took me about 40mins. It is okay route even for a hopeless-physical-ability person like me.

Fun trail with more difficult or easier paths to choose that got you to the same destination. Well maintained. Very clean. The water point at the midway was excellent. A place with plenty of space to explore on multiple visits.

I took a different route back what I can really advice. The hike is lovely, but the advertised hike is very busy. The alternative route is not much longer and brings you past bunkers and has fewer stairs. It's challenging but very doable.
