Strengths:Yes, there are a lot of places to see and many English signs along the way and three incredible oreums in Sarabong, Byeoldobong and Wondangbong. But, ...
Weaknesses:It does not seem like an Olle course because, once again, this is a fringe course (transitional) heading east out of Jeju City wanting to, but taking too long, to reach the country. Little beauty. Always in a state of flux, asking oneself, “Is this it?” Heavy trash along many places on the path.
English learning opportunities:Sarabong (multiple), Borimsa temple, Goneuldong, Stele Street of Hwabuk, Hwabuk Smoke Mound, Hwanhae Great Wall, Samyang-dong Prehistoric Site, Bultapsa, an old trail going to Sinchon, Dakmoru (multiple), Daesom Islet, Yeonbukjeong, Stele Street of Jocheon, Manse Hill
Quotable:“How do tight high-rise apartments, unkempt Jeju Clean Houses (neighborhood garbage separation and collection areas), well-used oreum (parasitic volcanic cones), winding village roads dotted with houses and sparkling vehicles, chained barking dogs and a few horses, unsuspecting bountiful wildflowers, snickering old folk lounging next to small harbor entrances, Buddhist temples, a ghost village, multiple sea views, used farm space no matter how sparse, omnipresent litter in all forms, modern coastal roads and old habits in architectural stone design and urban planning all fit together? These answers and more are all around the trail.”
