Strengths: This course, although short, is almost entirely in highlands nature. This is where Olle turns for a different look into the island’s various terrain. The way is uphill and a bit steep for a valued workout.

Weaknesses: Two problems, first, is the power plant is usually within view of the landscape and second, the natural course does not go on long enough. It is about half the length of an ordinary course.

English learning opportunities: Baksugijeong, Moljil, Bolenang path, Bongsudae - signal fire place

Quotable: “This route runs through a valley and along the coast. The route has very different scenery compared to other sites on Jeju Island. Be sure to explore the amazing bounty including the Baksugijeong (wide cliffs) and Andeok Valley. Mature forests on the cliffs and in the valley allow for a unique hike.” -- Jeju Olle
