Let's spend the day hiking at Bukhansan National Park! We will take a bus to the trailhead and hike along Sumeunbyeok Ridge. The trail will lead us over numerous peaks before bringing us down to Bukhansanseong. The hike will have some challenging, steep sections and will involve a lot of rocky terrain, so footwear appropriate for hiking is a must. The hike will take about five or six hours, and we'll eat lunch somewhere along the trail. There will also be the opportunity to hike to the top of Baekundae for those who wish to. It should be a great hike!

The hike will take five or six hours round-trip (including time for lunch). The hike is around 10km and will take us over a variety of terrain. The trail will have a lot of rocky sections, some ropes and rails, and some staircases, too. This hike isn't suitable for those who are afraid of heights. Keep in mind that many of the trails at Bukhansan are challenging and rocky, including the one we will hike on during this meetup.
