The way to Bija Forest is very peaceful and beautiful. I think it is better to go during lunch time because it is less people. It takes 40 mins to walk and super easy. I saw many families with all dif... more »
I really liked this forest because it's a nice, relaxing walk in a beautiful surrounding among trees that are hundreds of years old. It's very cheap admission (I think around 2,000 won for adults) and takes about an hour to an hour and a half to walk through. The total course is 3.2km if you walk the whole route. It's a very easy walk, but some parts are loose rocks, so wear appropriate foot wear.
Love the trails here, flat and good footpath. It takes about an hour to walk the entire forest path at a leisure pace. Entry for adult is 3000 KRW.
