    The Trail 1 of Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail is most popular among family visitors. The trail begins at a forest trail in Sosu Seowon, which is a memorial hall for Confucianism services in the honor of distinguished scholars and statesmen. The forest is made of pine trees which are as old as 100 years grown straight up like the upright mind of the scholars. The idea of Confucianism, which passed down the 500 years of Joseon dynasty, can be found in the cultural heritages here and there. Nationwide young talents must have followed this trail to reach Hanyang, current Seoul, to take government examination for high-ranking government officer. The trail is still kept as a soft dirt road through deep forest. Please pretend that you are a young talent at the time here, from where many famous scholars were produced because it was regarded as a great place with good luck. You can meet live history while enjoying beautiful scenery by walking this trail at the slow pace of a scholar.

    Cheong-dari Bridge, a bridge with a sad legend of Sunheung

    “Child, we picked up you at the underside of Cheong-dari Bridge”. This is what a child in this area frequently hears from parents. There is a sad story of Sunheung behind this talk. It was the time of King Sejo. When the effort to recover the crown for King Danjong had failed, many scholars and their families who supported the recovery effort were sacrificed. Some children of them who escaped the massacre hid under the Cheong-dari Bridge. And village people sympathized with them and brought them to their home. Since then, the word, ‘a child picked at the underside of Cheong-dari Bridge’, appeared. The Cheong of Cheong-dari Bridge means clean and Cheong-dari Bridge means that it is a bridge entering into a world of cleanliness. Later, they gave another name of Jewol-gyo Bridge to Cheong-dari Bridge. Jewol came from the word, Gwangpung-jewol, which means bright wind and clear moon.

    Bae Sun, a blacksmith who became a guarding spirit of the village, Bae Sun Memorial Stone and Gukmang-bong Peak

    Bae Sun was born as a son of a blacksmith in Baejeom-gol Village during the middle of Joseon period. Since his class is low, he was not allowed to learn. But every day he went to the class at Sosu Seowon about 5km away to listen to the class while standing out of the classroom. The teacher, the great scholar Toegye, brought him in and Bae Sun became the first and only student of Toegye from the lowest class. The mountain behind the Choam-sa Temple at the rear of village is called Gukman-bong Peak, which means wishing for the country, because Baesun dedicated ritual service to King Seonjo in the capital for 3 years every 1st and 15th day of the month at this place. King Gwanghae-gun gave commendation to Baesun on this loyalty and Baesun was called ‘Bae Chung-sin’ (meaning loyal subject) since then. The village with Bae Sun’s blacksmith shop in it was named Baejeom after then.

    Dalbat-gol Village

    Walking north from Biro-sa Temple to north would lead you to Dalbat-gol Village in a valley. The village is something like a bosom of the Sobaek-san Mountain. The inside of the village is soft and warm. The ‘dal’ of Dalbat-gol Village is an ancient word for mountain. Therefore, the name means a village with small patch fields on the slope of a mountain. Dalbat-gol Village is also known as a martial-art training ground of ‘hwarang’ (young military cadets) during Shilla Period.
