There are many walking trails in Korea, but you don’t need to travel far to enjoy one of Seoul’s 8 Dulle-gil trails, all of which are fully open to public as of November 15, 2014. As the love and interest from Seoulites and visitors from other regions increases for Seoul’s natural attractions, so the roads built close to mountain trails gain in popularity. However, this influx of vehicles is detrimental to the natural scenery. In order to protect Seoul’s natural attractions while still allowing people to draw near, the Seoul government created the Dulle-gil trails that cover the city’s most visited natural attractions, organized into 8 courses reaching 27 different locations. Covering 157km in total, these trails are perfect for exercise but also good for viewing nearby cultural and historical sites. Moreover, all entrances and exits are within short walking distance to 23 major subway stations for easy access.
