I have been living in South Korea for nearly one year. My home town of Songtan is located next to Osan Air Base, where I am stationed as a U.S. Air Force officer. While the air is usually terribly polluted, there are some good trails through the hills to the east of town. One course you can follow starts on a trail heading east into the woods about 400 meters north of City Hall. You can follow this trail along the ridge past a gazebo (2 kilometers), Puraksan summit (4 kilometers), crossing a red bike path twice, then the main road, you can work your way out to Togamsan (8 kilometers). Here you can really get lost if you want. I still have not figured out all the trails back this far - just last weekend I spent nearly three hours running around back there.
