----Course takes about five hours to complete
Grade: 32.0 (22nd overall)
Natural scenery and landscape
Conditions of the trail
Environmental damage / lack of footprint on the area
Crowd control / compared to how many people are using trail
Strengths:From Namwon, the Keuneong Trail’s 1.5-kilometer beginning is a nice view of the seaside. The last few kilometers of the course are the only other things of note. These bring a hiker toward the climactic finish at Soesokkak.
Weaknesses:As with Course No. 4, there is a lot of pavement walking, more so than all other Olle segments. A lack of strong points on this course signals a weak point.
Quotable:“Here [Soesokkak] the fresh water mingles with the seawater providing the perfect place to bathe. The estuary provides the perfect place for tourists to appreciate Soesokkak’s calm and tranquil nature. The main attraction at Soesokkak has, more recently, become Jeju’s traditional raft boat, the Tewoo.” -- Cat Lever, Jeju Weekly
