Subong-ro’ is built solely by an former Olle Ranger, Mr. Subong Kim, back in the time when Jeju Olle Foundation was surveying the third route. Mr. Kim made walk-able path with a hand shovel and pickax on the path only goats used to walk. There used to be no way of walking the rugged and wild ‘Dumeonimul- Seogeon-do(island)' route, but staffs and volunteers of Jeju Olle handpicked stone by stone off the trail and renovated it into a new coastal path.

How to find the way back from the Finishing Point
Oedolgae

It is a rocky island in Cheonji-dong, Seogwipo City, Jeju Island. The 20m tall island is located at the southern foot of the Sammae-bong(peak). It is called 'Oedolgae' because it stands tall alone. It is the rocky island d at the volcanic eruption 1.5 million years ago, and there are few pine trees growing on it.

Dombenang-gil(pathway)

It is a forest path with a rugged rock precipice and evergreens. You may observe the beautiful scenery of three islands, Moon-seom and Sae-seom to the east and Beom-seom to the southwest. Everything unfolds beautifully. ‘Dombe’ means cutting board in Jeju dialect and ‘Nang’ means trees. There used to be a lot of trees with cutting board resembling wide leaves.

Seogeon-do(island)

There are many assumptions around the name of this island. It is marked as 'Budo' on the produced in 1709. The name 'Seogun-do' is an incorrect recording of the Korean pronunciation for a rotten island. It has become a rotten island due to wasted soil in the island. Twice a day at low tides, the seawater splits into two, and the way to the island surfaces.
