This is a great alternative to Bukhansan, which although great, is a bit out of the way if you are in the center of Seoul and short on time. I recommend starting at Sadang because the views from that trail are spectacular.
And not sure what to expect. The walk from the station to the entrance was tough enough. The seasoned old folks were warning us that it could be too difficult, looking at how inexperience we were. But we made it to the TOP! Not all...More

Perfect view, nice length and Not many people on week days! Especially we liked the leaves with a Lot of colors during Fall time. Make sure you bring a Lot of Food and Drinks on the Top of the Mountain!
Gwanaksan is one of the tallest mountains in Seoul, second only to Bukhansan, but Bukhansan is farther away from the city and you won’t get such a great view. Gwanaksan is not such a long trip to go up, especially if you take local buses...More
About 630meters, with some great views of the city, and lots of climby rocks, Gwanksan is one of the best hiking mountains in Seoul.
It can get busy on the weekends, so try to get there during the week. Also, don't be afraid to adventure...More
