Owner description: One of the most popular pastimes in Seoul is hiking and this stunning national park just outside the city is a local favorite. Aside from a variety of hiking trails for every skill level, you’ll also see lots of flora and fauna, temples and ancient fortresses.

We started off the hike to Baegundae peak at 9am then finished it and arrived again down the mountain at 3pm.
It was not an easy hike. Trails are rocky, big rocks. And before reaching the peak, you must be able to pull yourself on a steep rock. Good thing there were steel wires to help you.
but all this was worth it once you're on top. You can see the whole city of Seoul.
However note that it's not easy as well going down.
TIP: Wear hiking gear! Chucks won't help you this time.

Took underground from CIty Hall to Dobongsong Station, then just followed all the other hikers. Went on a weekday and it was still pretty busy, I'd hate to see how busy it got during the weekend. Went first week in November and the autumn colours were spectacular. Took about 4 1/2 hours round trip from the information hut. The last 1/2 hour is very strenuous but well worth it for the view at the top.

Close to the down town. Just around 30 minutes traffic from Myeong-dong to Bukhansan (Not include the long queue up of waiting bus). The trail is challenging. Need more preparation for the hike. The sign here mostly only in Korean.

You have to be in shape to make it to the top. Be prepared for at least a 2 hour climb and bring a couple water bottles and a snack. Very pretty, but not the most quiet or pretty mountain in Seoul. Try Ansan for a more laid back climb.

Started the trip with a taxi ride to Waryong Park. The walk took a total of 2plus hours at a comfortable pace but due to the ups and downs of the fortress will not recommend for those with weak knees. The walk brings you away from the hectic pace of Seoul city while technically still in the middle of the city. Great view of Seoul city and the hills around it.
