This is too short to upload on alltrails.com. It is really a short walk.

Easy with incredible views.

Whoever mapped out this hike of Seoul, certainly knows Seoul well. (I spent 12 years of my life in Korea.) As one would expect, Seoul is a modern and bustling city, but it has various districts which have very distinct atmospheres. This hiking route provides a very nice sample of the different flavors of Seoul.

I personally suggest doing this hike in the spring or autumn.

Forest, rock, and river views with gentle elevation changes. Wear comfortable, close-toed shoes suitable for walking on uneven and potentially slippery surfaces. Hold the handrail by the section of metal walkway on the way down to prevent taking a dive. Wildlife included several chipmunks, a frog, two crows, a magpie, and an unidentified, fast-moving rodent. Only encountered two other hikers on a Wednesday morning in May. No vendors, but there are a couple of toilets before you reach the major elbow of the trail towards Biryeong Falls. Very few informational panels are translated into English, but the directional signposts are.

Hiked this easy trail today with my boys. The hike to the waterfall is a nice easy stroll along a stream. The trail can then be continued up to the peak in better weather. Unfortunately that part of the trail was closed due to snow and we didn't have proper gear so the ranger wouldn't allow us to continue.

We completed this adventure with the whole family (included our two dogs). The hike is not long and is very easy to complete with only a 400 foot elevation gain to reach the small lookout peak. There are alternate routes listed on the map at the trailhead and it is possible to get to the beaches on the other side of the hill without going to the peak for an even easier stroll. Elephant rock is pretty cool to see and my kids enjoyed building rock towers with the large rounded rocks on the beach. The beach here is not sandy so don't expect to be able to lay out and sunbathe. Great experience and the adventure includes just finding the way here. We used GPS coordinates to reach the parking lot and enjoyed the ride. There is not very much information on this hike in English which just added to the adventure of it all. Great memories.

We went on the cable car and then hiked to the top of the mountain and enjoyed the view on a nice spring afternoon to finish off a day of hiking at Seoraksan National Park. This hike provides an incredible view, especially for the little effort that is required. This is well worth the time to go and see it.

I hiked this trail in October of 2013. The fall colors are incredible. The trail is well maintained and the falls are amazing.
