About the event
From Muakjae station (Orange line 3) we will follow the road up to the start of the trail through a local park. The trail gradually transitions from wooden steps to a rocky path, and after a short climb we will be greeted with a fantastic view of the surrounding hills and countryside. We will then join the Seoul City Wall Trail that leads to the top of Mount Inwang-san (339.8m). Coming down the other side we will follow the inner wall trail for a while, then take the outer wall trail (easier for the knees) to the gentle slopes down to the road that leads to Gyeongbokgung station(Orange line 3). The walk is less than 5 km and should take approximately 2 hours.
