Dowon-dong and Taegok-dong are located in the southwestern area of Taegu (in Talseo-gu), at the foot of the hills surrounding Ap'san. This route runs along the ridgeline of a small spur off the main range that leads down towards Hwawon and helps form the western boundary of Dowon Lake. Dowon1a branches off from the main route and avoids some steep climbing. Recommended for the less physically inclined.
