Sucheol Village → Jimak Village → Pyeongchon Village → Daejang Village → Gyeonghogang River → Hanbat Village → Naeri Village - Sungsimwon (Punghyeon Village) → Eocheon Village
In this 14km section of Jirisan Dulle-gil, you’ll be walking from Sucheol-ri, Geumseo-myeon and Eocheon-ri, Danseong-myeon in Sancheong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do. The trail in this section winds along Gyeonghogang River from Sancheong-eup, Sancheong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do. The road to Daejang Village is paved with cement, and this can be a disappointment to those who prefer dirt road, but it still offers a great view of CheonwangbongPeak and Gyeonghogang River.
Gyeonghogang River is formed by the confluence of streams from Jirisan Mountain, and it joins Nakdonggang River down south. It shows us how thin streams of water can form a river, and how rivers form a greater river. It’s nature’s way of telling us how little things can make a big difference. It also tells us that every little thing matters.
Once you start walking on the forest path between Seongsimwon and Eocheon Village, you’ll hear cars on the highway and National Road No. 3 along Gyeonghogang River, but as you go deeper into the forest, the noise of traffic will be replaced by the chirping sound of birds flying between pine and oak trees. Overall, it’s a great path to take if you want to take a break away from your hectic life and divert your attention to the birds twittering, water flowing, and wind blowing in the forest.
The trail between Sucheol and Eocheon pass through Sucheol, Jimak, Pyeongchon, Daejang, Sancheong-eup, Naeri, Baramjae, and Punghyeon Villages.
