Running along Namhangang River, Yeoganggil Trail consist of five routes: Yennaruteogil Trail (Old Quay Trail, 15.3 km, 5–6 hours), Semulmeorigil Trail (Confluence of Three Rivers Trail, 19.7 km, 7–8 hours), Bawineupgubigil Trail (Rock Marsh Trail, 14 km, 4–5 hours), Oiljangteogil Trail (Fifth-Day Market Trail, 12.4 km, 4–5 hours), and Hwanghaksangil Trail (Hwanghaksan Trail, 6.5 km, 3–4 hours). Each route has its own charm. Among them, Oiljangteogil Trail (Yeoganggil Trail Route 4) is a trail you can’t afford to miss if you want to learn about the past and present of Yeoju, all while enjoying a breathtaking view of Yeogang River.

Oiljangteogil Trail runs from Silleuksa Temple, with its thousand years of history, to Sejongdaewangneung Station, Gyeonggang Line. Unlike what its name may suggest, you can find a traditional market only in a small part of this route. Its scenery dramatically changes throughout with its wide range of tourist destinations such as Yeongwollu Pavilion with a panoramic view of downtown Yeoju and Yeogang River; Daerosa Shrine built to honor Song Siyeol, a Neo-Confucian scholar also known by his pen-name “Uam”; and Sejong Forest Park in a deep forest. After two and a half years of renovation, the Tomb of King Sejong celebrated its grand reopening last May. Royal Forest Path, a 700 m long walking path connecting the Tomb of King Sejong and Tomb of King Hyojong, is a treasure of Yeoganggil Trail. Despite the many places to see around Route 4, taking your time and basking in the views are more recommended than anything else. In fact, sites like the Yeongwollu Pavilion, which serves as a perfect for viewing the sunset, and the downtown area are perfect after a long day of adventure.
