Way-marking and Trail Signs on Jeju Olle Trail

Will I get lost? How is way-marking on the trail?

These are questions that pop up now again from walkers around the world. But every trail in the world has their own way and amount of way-marking, so it’s somewhat problematic to give a blanket answer in return.

In the years I’ve been walking the trail I’ve found that being in deep conversation with someone else has actually almost always led me to taking the wrong way. “Huh, where did we turn off back there…?”

As some background we have a Tamsa Team (Explorer Team) that goes out and responds to any trail way-marking issues around the island

Members of the Olle Academy submit images of trail issues when they are out walking, too.
