Great hike. However, expect to rock climb a bit at the top so wear shoes with proper grip. I had my running shoes which was a bit dangerous as I kept slipping on the rocks.

Nice easy trail from Hangangjin Station to Seoul Tower

Beautiful views and the colors were outstanding. Because we caught it during the fall color change it was very crowded. Everyone was polite and it gave us a chance to break on the hike up. Views were amazing.

Great hike, but some of the trail were closed, so you will need to find your way.

Y-shaped valley honey jam

Easy course to walk while looking at downtown Seoul. The way to descend from Yongmabong to the film company was quiet and good

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!!!!

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 ;-)

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.

Amazing trail. Long and hard, but SO worth it when you get to the top. We went up and back, and it took about 3 hours.

You can enjoy some nature in the right centre of a big city. All the trails are nicely maintained and easy to walk.

The UI line takes you to the east side of the mountain. It you want to start on the west side take line 3 until Gupabal station and take exit 1. Make u turn to bus stop and get on the 704 or 34 bus until Bukhansanseong Ipgu (12-233). Then walk to hike. The hike was challenging. The start of the hike was beautiful with the river, mini rapids and water. The view at the top is good if it isn’t wash out. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

Short climb. Pkenty of points of entry to reach Namsan tower. Well maintained trails.

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!

Awesome trail, I recommend doing it when in Seoul and you have the time to spend on the hike. It took me about 8hours to do it, though I did take a couple wrong turns and lost the trail a couple times and stopped for pictures periodically. So I actually did about 12miles instead of the 11 noted on the map. I did the trail with running shoes and it was fine, though trail running or hiking shoes would help in some of the rocky and sandy bits. Bring plenty of water, and note that there aren't many restroom facilities on the trail, so plan accordingly. There are some places where the terrain can be a bit technical where you have to scramble up/down some rocks, but more often than not, there were also options with stairs and/or ropes to grab onto.
