In Seoul, there's a national park named Bukhansan and it has 2 mountains. The one is Bukhansan itself and the other is Dobongsan. Dobongsan is a rocky mountain as many of Korea mountains are. This mountain has approximately 340 trails. So you can pick any one according to your condition and time.
Also Dobongsan locates in very convenient place so you can take a taxi, subway or bus to get there. Most popular train route is following its ridges.
I started hiking from Songchu office of the national park. It is mid-spring and trees are not green enough.

Every mountains in Korea has the pink rose bay. They are gleaming with the noon light.
It's beautiful spring afternoon.
And the sunshine makes winter shadow.

This ridge called Podae ridge. Podae means antiaircraft guns base but no more.
But you can't be there without rock climbing gears.
Instead, you can go up to the right peak named Bisundae.
This is Songchu waterfall.
Dobongsan is beautiful in every season. It takes 3~7 hours to finish depends on the trail.
