Section 3 (Meodeulryeonggil Trail) : Traces of history and Jeong Hoon, the poet of Meodeulryeong.

This is a section where the traces of an unknown fortress wall from the Three Kingdoms Period and the old Pass can be found.
Although Meodeulryeong has lost its function as a route, it was a famous hill where a lot of people passed by carrying bundles. Presently, Chubu Tunnel and Madalryeong Tunnel connect Daejeon and Geumsan; in the past, people could only access Geumsan through Taebongjae Pass or Meodeulryeong.
Furthermore, Meodeulryeong appears in the representative poem ‘Meodeulryeong’, written by poet Jeong Hoon which starts with ‘Meodeulryeong after Yogangwon. The path where magistrates climbed over, peddlers took rest and thieves quenched their thirst’. Section 3 is connected from Maninsan Natural Recreation Forest parking lot to Taesil-ro trail. Although it is tough because of big changes in elevation, the view looking out over the ridges is breathtaking.

The trail towards Mt. Sikjangsan past Jeonggibong Peak is well-built and the fortifications can be seen in many places, together with the fortress wall at the mountain summit near Meodeulryeong.
One can presume that this place was a strategic military location in the Three Kingdoms Period. In the vicinity of Section 3, Donggu Youth Natural Training Center and Sangso-dong Forest can be found.
