Strengths:On the off chance it happened to rain a lot the day before hiking, Eongtto Falls is going to be the most important place to see on the trail. If no rain, then there’s only rocks. Mt. Gogeun makes up for lack of precipitation, however. A different view of Seogwipo is presented. And finally, Hanon Crater and its rice fields are worth checking out after walking by the temple, Bongnimsa. An added bonus, very few people use this spur trail.
Weaknesses:There’s a lot of concrete on this trail. Coming out of the city, what else can be expected? There’s not many sites along the way.
Quotable:“Eongtto is a combined name with Eong, a Jeju dialect word for rock, and Tto, Jeju dialect for entrance. The height of the waterfall is 50 meters and it exists around a warm-temperate forest. Eongtto waterfall is located near Seogwipo City, and is equipped with an observatory and Olle (walking) trail [No.] 7-1 passes nearby.” -- Yang Ho Geun, Jeju Weekly
