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.
