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…?”

We also have a trail detour page in the Korean language. Images are included to help non-Korean speakers. Click here to browse that page.

As some background we have a three member strong Tamsa Team (Explorer Team) that goes out and responds to any trail way-marking issues.

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

Anyway, these photographs below show how we mark the trail.
