Unjeong is a very newly built city about an hour west of Seoul that has an absolutely gorgeous park in the middle of it. This park, Unjeong Lake Park, has a short bicycle path that loops around its picturesque lake.
Unjeong Lake Park's bicycle path is the perfect place for a short riding session with a fellow rider. It is a scenic 2.8 kilometer loop that is essentially flat. In the middle of the loop is a well-maintained lake and marshland. This loop is also well connected to other paths which allow for longer bike rides when that 2.8 kilometer loop starts to get a little repetitive.
Well-paved path the entire way. Yay.
Let's put it this way: If you struggle on this path, you should probably still be using training wheels.
1 loop = 2.8 kilometers = 7 minutes
There aren't too many routes available here. The park is best enjoyed leisurely so don't be scared to venture off the bicycle path mentioned here. Look around. Explore. It's not a bad place.
Unjeong Lake Park is actually only one park that is part of a very well-connected network of parks in the area. There are many bicycle routes to explore and follow that will take you through many of the nearby neighborhoods.
Where: Gyeonggi-do, Paju-si, Yadang-dong
From Gyeongui-Jungang Line - Unjeong Station (운정역):
-Use exit 1. Upon exiting the station, remain on the pedestrian overpass until the end. You should go left on the street below you once you get to the end. Follow the street.
-After 1 block, you will come to the main entrance to Ubi Park. Continue following the road you're on until you get to a bridge that overlooks a lake on your right.
