Bukhansan National Park - Uisang Ridge Hike

  • Oct 3, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • Bulgwang Station (Line 3 & 6) Exit #8

Thursday is a national holiday, so let's spend the day hiking at Bukhansan National Park! We will take a bus to the trailhead and hike along Uisang Ridge. The trail will then lead us over numerous peaks before bringing us down to Samcheon Temple. The hike will have steep sections and will involve a lot of rocky terrain, so footwear appropriate for hiking is a must. The hike will take about six hours, and we'll eat lunch somewhere along the trail. It should be a great way to spend "National Foundation Day!"


 

 

Meeting Place:

Bulgwang Station (불광역)

Lines 3 & 6, Exit #8

 

 

 

Meeting Time:

8:30am

 


Cost:

City bus to/from the trailhead (around 1,000-2,000 won each way) -- Can use T-Money

 

 


What to bring:

 

Clothing appropriate for the weather

Appropriate footwear for hiking (hiking boots/sneakers)

Packed lunch to eat while hiking

Snacks

Plenty of water (bring a lot, you will need it!)

    • Heather G.

      Hi Christina, I'm sorry you missed this hike. It looks like you joined this meetup after I had already sent everyone an email with my phone number in it. I didn't see any of these messages until after the hike, and unfortunately I think you missed the group by only a minute or two (we left at 8:43ish?). I hope to see you at another hike!!

      I'd like to come but will it be ok for someone that doesnt hike that much?

      October 2, 2013

    • Heather G.

      The hike will cover some challenging terrain (steep, rocky), and will last six hours. If you feel physically fit enough to do this, then feel free to come. If the hike is too hard for you, there will be several opportunities to shorten the hike (and you can meet everyone again at the bottom).
