Strengths:Four oreum total. The first two are immense in Sanbangsan and Songaksan. A person could spend a number of hours just at these two places, plus the Yongmeori coast. Leaving Hwasun Beach, there are countless beaches to traverse and trying to get over the sand dunes. This may be the most action-packed course on the whole network of trails. This and more to see.
Weaknesses:Not much. There’s a lot of people using this trail, thus the environmental impact of this is obvious. Only minor flaws, nothing serious.
English learning opportunities:Hwasun Beach, dune, smoke mound, Sanbangsan (multiple), Yongmeori Seashore, Fossils in Sagye, Songaksan (multiple), Sesal Oreum, Soetal Oreum, Hamo Beach
Quotable:“A relatively unknown site on the southwestern coast of Jeju, Mount Songak boasts some of the island’s best panoramic scenery. While a great place to bring a camera, Songaksan is also a mountain scarred from a time of instability, and visible reminders of the area’s once turbulent past are apparent. A trip to the mountain gives visitors a glimpse into the reality of Jeju’s plight during Japan’s war with China and World War II, which is as much a part of the experience as the 360-degree views.” -- Jon Walker, Jeju Weekly
