If you are looking for a very convenient mountain biking experience in the middle of Seoul, head to Nanji Han River Park. The Nanji Han River Mountain Bike Course is a 1/2-kilometer loop nestled between Haneul Sky Park and the Han River.
To complete the course, you will face several various challenges such as rollers, banked curves, a balance-beam, narrow trenches, drop-offs, and a see-saw. There is no supervision on hand so ride at your own risk and know your limits.
Lots of variety. This is a mountain bike course. Expect a challenge.
The level of difficulty depends largely on you. Many of the features are optional. You can choose to ride over or around them. The course has the potential to be quite difficult and even dangerous, but it doesn't have to be. Basically, just know what you are capable of and don't do anything stupid.
1 loop = 1/2 kilometer
There is only one approach to this course: go hard or go home.
