Incheon has many tidal flats and wetlands, so reeds and silver grass grow a lot. In autumn, many tourists visit to see the reeds along the walking routes become red in the setting sun. Reed is a perennial plant belonging to the rice family. It grows in wetlands such as rivers, ditches, and ponds. It grows up to 2~3m high and blooms on average in mid-September. If you want to feel Incheon in autumn, we recommend a place where reeds and silver grass are beautiful along with viewing the autumn leaves.

Reed communities are beautifully formed on the “Ecological Festival Island” in the park. If you visit during sunset, you can enjoy the beautiful reed colonies. There is a 4.3km circular trail where you can take a walk and enjoy a beautiful autumn.
Deokjeokdo Island is an island in Ongjin-gun. From Neungdong Jagal Madang on Deokjeokdo Island, you can enjoy a superb view of the large reed communities and gravel along the coastal landscape. Just going to see the largest reed colony in the West Sea is worth it, but the rock formations, pebbles and the sunset along the beaches are just excellent. The trail connecting Joobong Peak and Bijobong Peak is good for trekking so walk along the path while you appreciate the beauty of the west coast.
