Mt. Jeongjoksan - 113m/371'

How To Get There: The trailhead for this hike is through Jandeungsa Temple in Ganghwa-Do.

Mt. Jeongjoksan
The trails here are already hip deep, this place must be very popular to hikers.
At the first summit, I already had a great view looking down to the Temple and a lot of small islands to the south. Not bad for a 10-minute hike up. For another 10 minutes and you'd be at the true summit. There were only a couple of people at the summit at this time, I guess I was lucky to have had a quiet hike.
This small mountain has three summits, the middle being the highest. The hike to the third summit is what I like the best. The view is better and I liked the experience of hiking along the fortress. Another 10 minutes is all it takes to get to the third summit.
