Description

This is section 2 of 8 for the Seoul City Trail. The whole trail is a 157 km trail that goes all the way around Seoul. Each section starts and ends near a subway station for easy access. This one starts near Hwarangdae Station and ends at Gwangnaru Station.

These are fairly easy to follow. They paint big blue and yellow direction arrows on the pavement, tie orange ribbons around the trees and street-lamps, etc. There are stamp stations periodically to stamp the Seoul trail booklet (available at some stands but not all).

This section was very moderate, mostly paved with some singletrack. A bit of uphill in Achasan park, as you can see on the GPS profile. All in all very easy, some good views, and lots of restaurants and cafes etc at the start and end to make a day of it.
