Wow this was the hardest trail i ever hiked in my life! I did 1/4th of the trail listed here and logged 10.5 miles and 253 steps climbed. It would be hard for me to believe that the whole trail is only 16 miles. Trying to make a circle the map isnt as accurate it said 1 km to end the trail and it was more like 3. So beware about time and make sure you give yourself enough time. It took me 5 hours. It was all stairs up and down. It was the nicest most well kept trail ive been to. Honestly the views are incredible. this might be my fav lifetime hike so far. Theres tons of toilets but no water so make sure to bring a lot, I ran out during my hike about half way through. Highly recommend it!!!!

Trail starts out paved with steady elevation gain. It eventually turns into a trail less traveled with some great views of the city. It ends at a helipad.

Great views! The trail is clearly marked.

Steep and sustained start to an overall very pleasant hike. Not too crowded for the most part, and plalenty of variations for shorter /longer hikes

Plan ahead by starting at least 4-5 hours before sunset

The trail was not bad. It was rocky and steep.

We hiked up Seongpanak and down Gwaneumsa, it was a good but not great hike, mostly due to the massive crowds. We arrived at the trailhead at 0900 on the 281 bus from Seogwipo, and the parking lot was already almost full. The trail guide was very helpful in showing us which buses to take back to Seogwipo from gwaneumsa, and told us there’s a checkpoint about 2/3 up that you need to reach by 1230, or else you’ll be turned around! The hike itself is pretty difficult, but does have some good views of pretty much the whole island. I’d do it again, but would go much earlier in the day.

Amazing trail. Definitely difficult, wanted to stop many times. Two outdoor gyms on the trail. One place to stop and refill water by second gym.

Definitely a great and rugged course! There are tons of trails, beautiful views and seating along the course as you journey up to a variety of peaks. You can go beyond the observatory and enjoy very peaceful views of the city. I hiked up 2+ miles starting from the Memorial Parking trail entrance. The view was amazing once arriving to the the top. Ensure you’re well hydrated, have good shoes, water source and some snacks won’t hurt. This was first and I’ll definitely be back! There are so many trails on the Apsan, so I have to go! This was an impromptu solo hike for me and I enjoyed every second. I recommend it for peace and tranquility... oh and it’s minutes from Camp Walker!

The “trail” was closed, so I had to take the (bus)road up. Still a good workout! Nice views of the city. Not for you if you don’t like to be aroud a lot of people ;-)

Not too busy forest trail. Shaded for the lost part. Both clockwise and counter clockwise can be done with the latter providing steeper ascents at shorter intervals. Overall a nice day out

Nice hike with some pretty steep parts and nice views of the city. Then again, just walking the streets of Seoul is a pretty good work out ad well with a lot of climbs (and descents :-) )

Fairly simple trail, but please follow the signs and use your judgement. Some of the trails lines on AllTrails are questionable. I ended relying on AllTrails a little too much whrn I ended a little off rpite and ended taking a much more dangerous than expected.
