It is said that Mt. Gubongsan was given its name because it is a mountain with 9 peaks, but actually there are more than that. It is assumed that the biggest number, nine (gu) was used to represent its many peaks and in Yeojidoseo (descriptive geography of the Joseon Dynasty) which is a town history during Yeongjo of Joseon, it was recorded as Mt. Gubongsan. In addition, along with the story that it is an ideal spot of 'Gunsinipjohyeong’ and ‘Gubonggwisohyeong’, there is a legend that Taoist hermits came down onto Sinseonbawi Rock to play Baduk (Go).
If you face Gwanjeo-dong towards the north from Gubongjeong Peak, you can see the apartment villages of the city, and if you face Nurubeol in Heukseok-dong towards the south, you can enjoy the rural atmosphere of a beautiful village surrounded by Gapcheon Stream. Looking back and forth at both sides makes you feel that Mt. Gubongsan is a mountain with two faces. In particular, the autumn foliage of Mt. Gubongsan is one of the Eight Most Popular and Beautiful Sights of Daejeon, offering harmony with the mountain. In spring, you can enjoy the banquet of azalea.
In Ssaetteum Village in Goegok-dong, there is a 650 year old zelkova, the oldest tree in Daejeon and designated as a natural monument. You can cross the Gapcheon Stream, pass Jeongnim Middle School, Hyojabong Peak and move on to Jaenggibong Peak.
Around Section 11, the Old House of Papyeong Yun’s Family Seoyungong Clan, Goegokdong Dolmen, and Tomb of Dangun in Jeongnim-dong can be found.
