Corona vaccinations are going smoothly, but We are still not free to go out. Metasequoia Forest Road in Gyejoksan Mountain is a place where people can enjoy forest vacation while social distancing.
Gyejoksan Mountain is well known for its ocher roads and Gyejoksanseong Fortress. Gyejoksan Mountain has Metasequoia Forest Road as much as Jangtaesan Metasequoia Forest.
Passing through the parking lot of Gyejoksan Jangdong Forest Bath, there is an ecological park and camping site in Sandi Village. It is a good place to walk lightly around the camping site of Sandi Village, and the Sansinje-gil in Sandi Village in Gyejoksan Mountain is a road with a story.
Gyejoksan Metasequoia Forest Road should pass through the Sandi Village Center and the rice field path. It is a place full of relaxation because the way to go is a rural landscape. In the distance, the gray wall of Gyejoksanseong Fortress seems to be in hand.
As you walk along with the information sign, you can see the Metasequoia tree next to the slightly steep cement road. Metasequoia Forest Road will begin in earnest.
As you walk along the Gyejoksan Metasequoia Forest Road, you can hear the sound of mountain birds, streams of mountain valleys, and honeybees picking honey hard.
Walking through the Metasequoia forest path, one forgets the exhaustion of one's daily life for a while. That's why many people enjoy forest vacations.
The decades-old metasequoia tree is said to grow up to 35 meters long.
The Metasequoia forest trail stretching into the sky is attractive throughout all four seasons. Metasequoia trees are planted on both sides along the forest path, and there are large maple trees between them, creating a wonderful landscape in autumn.
The forest trail along the winding forest road is a good mountain path for men and women of all ages. It's a perfect forest path to walk in the corona era like these days.
A fun old story unfolds when you walk along the forest road while enjoying a forest vacation.
There is a small shelter where you can read stories about Jukchang Lee Sik-jik, Yaeun Song Si-young, Seolbong Gang Baek-nyeon, and Yeonbok brothers and Gangjeol, the commander of the righteous army during the Japanese Invasion of the Joseon Dynasty. If you read the legendary story and walk again, you will meet the ocher road.
I came down the Metasequoia Forest Road again to enjoy a quiet forest vacation. There is no better forest path to walk for an hour without having a hard time.
If you want to feel nature in a quiet place, you can walk along the Metasequoia Forest Road in Gyejoksan Mountain.
