Solsaem-gil Section

Bukhansan Ecological Forest – Jeongneung Parking Lot

This section contains a well-maintained forest, Bukhansan Ecological Forest, one of the best examples of a lush green manmade forest in the city, adjacent to Seongbuk-gu, as well as large beds of colorful wildflowers. There are programs that walk you though the forest’s ecology; learn more about mountain wildlife living side-by-side with an artificial forest creating a stark contrast between the two.
There are various convenience facilities dotted along the trail which make this section a great choice for families with young children. And because the trail is located at a higher altitude than the rest of the Dulle-gil trail, there are excellent views of the city (average height 200m) wherever you happen to be on this section.
Past the manmade forest the path leads you to a narrow path behind the Jeongneung Elementary School, followed by a traditional village full of old-fashioned Korean houses in Jeongneung-dong, Seongbuk-gu. The small town has preserved its antique appearance; each gravel and crack has a story to tell. The sad little rundown houses create a sense of familiarity that leaves a warm feeling in the hearts of Koreans. Old temples can be seen here and there, leading one to wonder whether life here was easygoing and peaceful or fierce with competition.
