A woodland path for meditation in Odaesan Mountain starts at Iljumun Gate at the entrance of Woljeongsa Temple and leads to Sangwonsa Temple by passing through spruce forest paths and Woljeongsa Temple. The path was a pilgrim’s trail for Buddhists offering a prayer in Sangwonsa Temple before a road was built at the end of 1960s.
The woodland path starts at Hoesageori after Banyagyo Bridge. Walking trails continue along forest paths and valleys after Seopdari Bridge and Stepping Stone Bridge, and Odaesan Valley and dense forests spreading out under the blue sky look as if they were a landscape painting. It is a fantastic trail where children can have learning experiences through forests, history and valleys.
