Bukhansan-Hyoja-2-dong-bus stop-to-Gugi-Tunnel-3-way-intersection-Gugi-Dong This hike starts from a lesser known entrance on the west side of the national park, the entrance is a couple of kilometers north of the west side's main entrance. From Gupabal Station (구파발역) go out exit 2 and make a U-turn out the exit and you will find the place to get the 704 (blue) bus or the 34 (green) bus to where the hike starts. Going from here on the weekend will probably be packed on the bus with people that are going to the park's west side main entrance, so it may be wise to get the 704 bus from Bulgwang Station (불광역) and go out exit 2 and walk straight. You will see the bus stop at the middle island in the road on your right. Around 5 or 6 stops after where the majority of people get off for the main entrance is where you will start your hike the bus stop name is 효자2통. At the ranger office, there are two trails. Take the one to the left and follow it up to 백운대. The hike going up to the top on the west side is pretty steep in areas, especially the last kilometer or so. When going down, you will mainly follow parts of the city wall along a ridge line. There are many ups and downs, which makes the hike pretty exhausting come the end even though the overall distance is not that far. Towards the end of the hike, you will get some pretty stunning views of Seoul that can't be seen from anywhere else. But going down will require going down some straight up and down rock faces that would be impossible to traverse if wet. Take extreme caution when on these as any mistakes will not end well. You will end up in a very rich neighborhood with some pretty amazing homes as well. Overall, it was a very beautiful hike, but make sure to bring plenty of water.

Loved the surprise lifting/gymnastic workout area mid-hike- have never seen anything like that! Leave it to the resourceful and creative South Korean people :] Just a little crowded in July. The recycled car tires for stairs was also neat

Der Nationalpark ist sehenswert, den Tempel am Anfang der Tour darf man nicht verpassen. Es ist alles ausgeschildert (koreanisch +englisch )und die Koreaner enorm hilfsbereit.

First to Review

You can see my way points, but for some reason the app kept pausing automatically. The whole hike was about 14.6kms and was about 6hrs and 15mins of actual moving time. This hike starts from a lesser known entrance on the west side of the national park, the entrance is a couple of kilometers north of the west side's main entrance. From Gupabal Station (구파발역) go out exit 2 and make a U-turn out the exit and you will find the place to get the 704 (blue) bus or the 34 (green) bus to where the hike starts.

In my opinion, doing this hike in the opposite direction would be more strenuous.
