This is a special announcement posting about Route 4 for anyone searching or planning on walking Jeju Olle Trail.
From August 1 2017, Route 4 has decreased in size. It was 23.6 KM, but now it is 19 KM.
This change will not be in any English guidebook or noted in the English language elsewhere at the time of writing.
In the image below the Route 4 start point is in the circle on the right hand side at Pyoseon. The route end point is in the bottom left side at Namwon. The red square shows the general area of the change.
Overall this should make Route 4 a better walking experience. This was our longest route on the whole of the trail.
We have one guided walk along the trail for Monday, May 15, 2017.
Kim Tae-su and Kim Sun-yeong will guide 5 registered walkers on Route 15-B.

From today Route 14-1 will be MUCH shorter (9.6KM instead of 17KM). The start point in Jeoji remains the same, but the mid-point stamp will be at the entrance to Mundoji Oreum, and the end point will be at O’Sulloc Tea Fields. The Gotjawal forest section after tea fields will no longer be included on the route.
