DMZ Peace Trails open to hikers in Korea(14 images)

Tourists hike along the DMZ Peace Trail in Goseong, South Korea, on Friday. Parts of the demilitarized zone were opened for tourism in April. A second trail, in Cheorwon, opened at the beginning of June, and a third is slated for Paju in the western part of the country.

A tourist hangs a message of peace on a "hope tree" along the DMZ Peace Trail. Visitors can hang plastic "leaves" with messages on the tree. One message, addressed to a father and grandfather, read: "Now that I'm at the DMZ, I'm hoping for reunification. Rest in peace." Photo by Thomas Maresca/UPI | License Photo
