Introduction : Gangneung Bau-gil Road is a 150-km walking trail comprised of 10 courses including mountain ranges and coastal sections, including Baekdudaegan, Gyeongpo, and Jeongdongjin. “Bau” means “rock” in the Gangwon-do dialect. When the people of Gangwon-do refer to Gangwon-do in a friendly way, they call it “Gamjabau.” Like the name, Gangneung Bau-gil features human-friendly trekking courses through beautiful nature. By traveling on foot, people can enjoy the tranquil scene and the scent of pine trees from the forest that makes up almost 70% of the routes.
This 16 km-long route along the coast includes tourist attractions such as Sacheonjin-ri Haebyeon (Beach) Park, Gyeongpo Beach, Gyeongpo Lake, Heo Gyun and Heo Nanseolheon Memorial Park, and Namhangjin Beach. Collect shells near the beach, enjoy the view from the deck, and take a leisurely stroll on Korea's longest, most lush pine grove path. The lakeside road in Gyeongpo and the Chodang Solbat-gil (pine grove road) at Heo Gyun and Heo Nanseolheon Memorial Park make this a beloved trekking attraction.
