Strengths:Nature presents itself after descending from Daesusanbong all the way toward the finish at Onpyeong. For a little while, a hiker enters a free-roaming horse area where close encounters are possible. Soon after, the mythological land of Honinji appears and visitors can learn about the founders of Jeju. The grounds are immaculate here. The quaint village of Onpyeong and its common space and basalt lighthouse is the perfect end to this course.
Weaknesses:Daesusanbong’s peak is a bit disappointing after finding a tower ruining the natural feel to the environment. One of several oreum on Jeju Island that suffers this fate.
English learning opportunities:Siksanbong (multiple), Daesusanbong, Honinji, Hwangrual, Onpyeong’s old lighthouse
Quotable:“Jeju Olle designated Olle Course No. 2 (from Gwangchigi Beach to Onpyeong) as its Friendship Trail with the Bruce Trail and [held] its opening ceremony in Nov. 2011.” -- Kim Bong Hyun, Jeju Sori
