Gyejoksan Red Clay Trail // 계족산 황톳길
In your search for interesting things to do in Daejeon you may very well run into this. The Gyejoksan Red Clay Trail.
This trail is located out on the edge of the city and is notable because it is said that walking barefoot on the red clay is good for your health.
My friends and I actually did this hike a long time ago but I just now stumbled across these photos on an SD card that I hadn’t used in a while. So I figured I post them now!
If you choose to take your shoes off and do the clay trail, which you don’t have to, then there is a little foot washing station at the end where you can clean all the red off your feet.
For me at least, it’s definitely quite a hike to get out there, but it was totally worth it. I definitely recommend checking it out sometime if you’re in Daejeon.
