There are two rail bikes near Gapyeong and the reviews and pictures for the one in Gapyeong include both. I could not find a separate review thread for the one in Gangchon which is located a few stations past Gapyeong station. We have done a few rail bikes in Korea and this is by the far the best, it is the most scenic and coolest. The park is located right next to Gimyujeong Station. It also uses the old rail tracks and ends at the old Gangchon station where a bus takes you back to the start. While everyone starts at the same time, this is not an issue as it is easy to keep space between each rail bike. A few highlights: since you start on a decline, you can go go faster with minimum effort, there is an actual RR crossing and gate that comes down for the bikes to cross over a public road, there a 3 tunnels, one that makes you feel like you are in a Korean Club (lights, music) and one with soap bubbles, after you rail bike along the North Han river on the old tracks you stop and an open car train takes you along the river to the old station. This short train ride is probably one of the most scenic train rides in Korea! Easy to get to as part of an ITX trip from Seoul to either Nami Island or Chuncheon. Highly recommended. We went during the week so did not need reservations but may need them on weekends and it unclear how easy this for foreign tourists. Rides start every hour 9:00-12:00 and 1:30-5:30 in the summer.

It was cold , and the crowd was fewer than warmer months during Winter. It was nonetheless super fun for the family. The scenery was good along the rail trail. They have a train to take you to the end station after 20 mins or so ride.

The rail bike ride was fun even though we were riding whilst it was snowing. You go through several tunnels which were decorated and the second part of the trip was on a slow moving train. Bundle up with heat packs, protect against wind chill factor and you should be fine.

We chose this over the Gangchon Rail bike park because this is a more quieter and less crowded Park. It was a pity that the trees had already shed their leaves. It would be more beautiful in autumn!
