Bike Path Overview

How did the Ocheon Bike Path (오천) get its name? Let’s break it down. Oh (오) means five using Sino-Korean numbers. Cheon (천) translates to stream. So the name literally means, Five Streams.

You’ll start with the Ssang Stream (쌍천), Dal Stream (달천), Seonghwang Stream (성황천), Bogang Stream (보강천), and Miho Sream (미호천).

Ocheon Bike Path follows streams, it twists and turns more than river paths, like the Han or Nakdonggang.

Starting in the east, the path shoots off from the Saejae Bike Path at the trough of it’s two highest peaks. Because of this, the elevation starts around 236 meters above seat level. As the path heads west, you’ll plateau before hitting another 231 peak, then descend to sea level as you meet up with the Geumgang Bike Path.
