This Jeju Olle friendship trail is a section of the Bruce Trail in the Hockley. The total length is about 9.6 km round trip. It reminds me the time when I was in Jeju Island (locate in Korea).

Loved to hike this as a kid, tried showing my own children but was very disappointed how overgrown everything was near the McNeilly hill. Not much of a trail there. Next time I'll have to bring my machete.

Gorgeous trail! Me and my partner went in mid April and there was still snow patches, absolutely stunning. We were crazy enough to camp out too! Was probably a little too cold for it but we could some gorgeous photos and had a lovely time!

For the weekend overnight hiker who cant afford hundreds of dollars for accommodation this trail lacks camp sites for your tent. Otherwise this trail could be amazing.
