We continued 2km from Seongsan on Route 1 to walk all of Route 2 and about 6km of Route 3 to make 23km for the day, 6 hours.
On a dull day with showers forecast for the afternoon, we wasted no time and just beat the rain. The route meanders through the Seongsanpo Wetlands, home to hundreds of species of migratory birds, later to head inland climbing two small Oreums (volcanic cones) before returning to the coast.
With rain forecast, it was a first light departure today
