Took the harder trail to the Seoseokdae summit (the highest climbable summit) from where the city bus drops you off. We had a great hike where we discovered a couple waterfalls, a gorgeous view at the summit and a scenic walk down littered with temples, if you still have the energy to see them. Lots of shade on this trail until you hit the summit. A bit challenging from the halfway point to the summit on the way up, but that doesn't matter once you see the view. I highly recommend seeing this.
Just a few tips:
1. Bring a lot of water (you can refill in a few places on the trail, but they are few and far between) and some snacks. This trail took us about 3 hrs to reach the summit.
2. The park rangers can provide you with a map, if you ask, and are really helpful at giving directions, in English.
3. Hiking shoes are a must (I did it in a cheap pair of sneakers and wouldn't want to do it again).
4. This mountain is a lot larger than you think. Don't expect to do everything in one trip.
5. It may be helpful to learn to read a bit of Hangul before visiting or bring along someone who can read it. Makes way finding so much easier.
