Bijarim Forest Reviews
화산송이 밟을 때 그 소리가 아직도 정겹습니다. 걸을때마다 기분이 좋아져요.. 오감이 열리는 기분이에요. 안가보셨다면 꼭 가보세요. 한번도 안가본 사람은 있을수 있지만 한번만 가는 사람은 드물꺼에요. more »The sound is still good when the volcanic clusters step on.

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.
