We like to hike. Our idea of hiking is day trips and not super remote. A 4-6 hour hike in a California Redwood state park is a good example.

We took about 6 of the 20+ trails on the south and east coasts. Every one was different and interesting in its own way. We stayed in Jung-Mun on the south side. Terrific little town with hole in wall places with tasty, healthy, cheap food and good bus transportation.

These hikes were a little different from our standard in that they often took more than 6 hours. They also could dip in and out of populated areas. We liked that because we might trip across a restaurant run by old lady divers or an archery club doing target practice.

Most trails were not at all crowded. The worst was part of a trail where a Korean soap opera was filmed.

It is hard to describe the Korean style of friendliness. They are very direct. Example was a man at a bus stop who figured we were going to have difficulty getting to our destination. So he flagged a taxi, allegedly for himself, and invited us to hop on. When we figured out what he was doing, we insisted on paying. He refused. We got out, gave the driver money, he grabbed it and gave it back. We tossed the money into the window. He grabbed it again, tossed it back on the street and had the driver zip off. There we were, picking up our money off the pavement. Anybody who has watched Koreans fight over who gets to pay the bill at a restaurant knows what I am saying. To Americans it looks like a hot argument when in fact it's best friends being best friends. My advice is enjoy it but don't always loose the argument - sometimes you have to win and pay the bill. This time we really tried but he was too clever for us;-)

Jeju Olle Trail is completely round the island broken up into 21 different routes.

In total we walked about 13km, about 3.5 to 4 hours time taken. Photography time included.

We started our walk from Hyatt Jeju along the Jungmun Beach (we did Route 8 going eastwards) heading towards the Daepo Pego (port) and ended our walk at the Yakcheon Temple.

Ensure that you look out for arrows (blue&orange) along the ground and olle trail ribbons (blue & orange as well) tying on trees along the way. Terrain is very varied, from easy tarmac lanes to quite difficult lava rocks along the bays.

Suggest you wear proper walking shoes. Bring along your own water & snacks. There are a few restrooms along the way.

If you are staying around Jungmun resort area (many hotels there), take airport bus limousine no 600 to go back to your hotel. Its about 1000 Korean Won per person.

Overall is an interesting walk because you will see village, seaside, port & temple along the way. This is one of the very popular walk in Jeju, so its like a "must walk" walk..

We just did a short segment of the Olle Trail & apparently other segments are even more interesting.. Check out some photos for illustration.
