Let's go for a snowy hike at Seoraksan National Park! This park is famous for its rugged, rocky mountains and breathtaking scenery. We will hike a 3.5 ~ 4 hour course perfect for a snowy, winter day. The trail will have some steep sections and stairs, and will likely be snowy and slippery. Crampons (metal spikes which you attach to your boots/shoes) will be necessary to hike on this trail. It should be a great day spent in the mountains!
