This section prides itself in having the best landscape centered on Mt. Ubongsan on the west of Daejeon and Mt. Gaphasan. The forest trail and ridge trail harmonize perfectly and the mountain range of Mt. Gyeryongsan unfolds towards the west, offering a thrill. The entire Daejeon National Cemetery and Yuseong can be seen at a glance and the colors of autumn foliage add to the hiking sensation.
Ansan-dong Fortress is a famous fortress from the Baekjae Period in which the western gate site still remains intact; every year on March 1st, Fortress Festival is held. Hiking around the fortress and the forest trail leading up to Usanbong Peak is extremely comforting and warm.
Although the path is steep until Usanbong Peak, standing on it and admiring the surroundings will captivate you. The ridge connecting Usanbong Peak and Mt. Gaphasan is the best ridge hiking course in Daejeon, and if you look towards the west, the mountain range of Mt. Gyeryongsan can be seen at a glance - this place is commonly known as Mt. Gyeryongsan Observatory.
Around Section 8, Daejeon National Cemetery, World Cup Stadium, and Daejeon Prehistoric Museum can be found.
