We took the train to Dobongsan station and walked 10-15mins to the park entrance. The ranger counter was just opened when we arrived at 8.20am. There are maps available. The level of difficulty is shown by the route (different from what is on their website)....More

If you'd feel better going there with a group of people you could join a meet up. If you check the meetup website there's a group called climbing in Korea. They sometimes have meet ups at Bukhansan and it's free.
