The best place to take a view of Jirisan Mountain is Samsinbong Peak (1,289m), located south of Cheonwangbong Peak on the Nangnamjeongmaek Ridge. If you look around from the top of Samsinbong Peak, you'll take in the panoramic view of Cheonwangbong Peak and Nogodan Peak as well as other parts of the main ridge of Jirisan Mountain. The people of Cheonghakdong come to this place in every April to hold a ritual

The Samsinbong Course starts from Cheonghakdong Hiking Information Center and passes through Samsinbong Peak, Sangbuljae, and Samsunggung before coming back to Samsunggung Hiking Information Center. The hiking distance is approximately 8.3km, and it takes about 5 hours to complete the trail.

And the distance between Cheonghakdong Hiking Information Center and Samsinbong Peak is 2.5km. If you climb the trail with the valley on your left side, you'll find yourself walking away from the valley before reaching a mountain spring called Samsincheon. Fill up your water bottle with the spring water there. Climb about 800m up the relatively steep path, and you'll reach the top of Samsinbong Peak in front of a stone pagoda.

The Samsinbong-Sangbuljae Section is 4km long, and it takes about 2 hour 30 minutes to reach the top. You'll be passing by Naesamsinbong Peak, Soetongbawi Rock, and Dokbawi Rock. The path up there is a little steep, but the terrain is relatively flat on the way down. The rock called Soetong looks like a lock with a big hole in the middle. According to a legend, the day this rock meets the Yeolsoebawi Rock in Cheonghakdong Valley will be when a new world will open up to those in Cheonghakdong Jirisan and the world will be in peace.

The Sangbuljae-Samsunggung Hiking Information Center Section is 2km long, and it takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to reach the top. The downhill trail is quite steep at the beginning, but there are safety ropes in some of the rough areas. So watch your step while coming down the mountain.
