Route 7 is a coastal Olle starting at Jeju Olle Tourist Center, passing through Beophwan-pogu(port) and finishing at Wolpyeong. Near the start of this trail is the breathtaking rock spire of Oedolgae and its surrounding cliffs. You will hike along the beautiful Oedolgae known for its outstanding scenery and Olle hikers' all-time favorite ecology trail 'Subong-ro.' 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. The route earned a new name, 'Ilgangjeong Badang Olle'.
