Also, you can see silhouette of Geumsu Mountain and Woraksan Mountain from a distance. This sight is lovely and gorgeous. The trail which is connected to Sinsunbong(peak) is the course of National Marathon. In Jeoseungbong, many wild boars were found and the name of Jeo(pig)seungbong is based on this fact. Jeoseunggol is located at the north Jeoseungbong, Hakhyeon-li. Locals called this 'Miinbong(pretty girl)' instead of Jeoseungbong.
In the ridge way which is located behind the Hakhyeon-li Hakhyeon supermarket, strange rocks like horse rock, crane rock, seal rock and ugly rock, etc are there. You can enjoy these rocks.

If you use two cars and if you start at Jeongbangsa(temple), it will be convenient.

The trail was treated well because of Marathon. Here and there, Amreung is connected but it is not dangerous. Wooden sign which show 'Miinbong 596m' is at the peak of Jeoseungbong.
If you pass three-way intersection which is connected from Jeoseungbong to Hakhyeon-li, you can find Amreung road.

If you pass Sonbadak rock and King Kong rock, you can find really steep rocky ground. You can find two ropes which were installed. If you use the ropes and then pass this rocky ground, you can find a tomb and three-way intersection which is connected to Jecheon Youth Center. Even road with Oak trees continues from here.
