The 5 Best Forest Trails in Jeju Island Selected by the Korea Forest Service

The Korea Forest Service has selected some of the best forest trails in the country, including some on Jeju Island, where many of our UoH friends will be going. We would be so happy if we could feel the autumn breeze while breathing in phytoncides and fresh air!

1. Sanyang Keunkot (산양큰엉곶)

Each space in the forest has its own story, including the Witch’s House, Snow White’s House, Dwarf’s House, and more. Kids will love it!

Address: 956-6 Cheongsu-ri, Hangyeong-myeon,Jeju-si, Jeju-do, South Korea

2. Gyorae Natural Recreation Forest (교래자연휴양림)

A forest path with an ecological observation trail, it is the only path in Korea that utilizes the residue of a volcanic eruption. It is characterized by its untouched nature and the rough feel of rocks, stones, and trees.

Address: 2023 Namjo-ro, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, South Korea

3. Meochewat Forest Trail (머체왓숲길)

It’s a gift from nature that has blossomed into a spectacular valley. ‘Meoche’ means ‘stony and overgrown place’ and ‘Wat’ means ‘field’ in the Jeju dialect. Therefore, Merchewat Forest Path means “a forest path with lots of stones and trees”. As you enter the forest along the vast ranch meadows, a magnificent primeval forest unfolds before you.

Address: 755, Seoseong-ro, Namwon-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, Korea

4. Saryeoni Forest Path (사려니숲길)

The Saryeoni Forest Trail is a favorite among travelers who love trekking because the original forest is largely untouched. It is also a Jeju Biosphere Reserve (Biosphere Resev) designated by UNESCO in 2002. It is perfect for those who want to take a stroll in the shade of the tall cedar trees above, basking in the sunshine and enjoying the cool breeze.

Address: San 137-1, Gyorae-ri, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, Korea

5. Sootmore Pyeonbaek Soop Gil (숫모르편백나무숲길)

It is an 8-kilometer forest trail in the Halla Ecological Forest. The volcanic soil and dense cypress trees make it feel cool and refreshing just standing still in the forest.

Address: 584, Myeongnim-ro, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, Korea
