💡TIPS: Popular Walking Routes between Eungbongsan and Seoul Forest

There are 2 walking paths between Eungbongsan and Seoul Forest, particularly popular in spring. Visitors continued from Forsythia viewing at Eungbongsan to Cherry Blossoms appreciation at Seoul Forest.

Routes to Seoul Forest:

  • [shorter route] Get down from the stairs of Eungbongsan to a platform with pedestrian path leading to Yongbigyo Bridge crossing and straight to Seoul Forest.

  • [longer route] Get down from Eungbongsan. Follow the dotted path on the map and cross the underpass to the riverside. Walk across Jungnangcheon Stream via the pedestrian bridge. Turn right after the bridge and walk around the corner of Hangang Waterside Park and get on the Footbridge leading direct to Seoul Forest. From the footbridge, you can get awesome view of the cherry blossom trees (in Spring) and deer corral below.

From Seoul Forest, you can take the subway from Seoul Forest Station (Bundang Line) to your next destination.
