After hiking up Hallasan through Sangpanak, we hike down using Gwaneumsa trail. It's beautiful and different from Sangpanak, so it's worth to try this route going down. The infrastructure of this trail is less developed as compared to Sangpanak.

After coming down, take Buss 77 to reach the main road. After which, you need to switch buses to Jeju city or other places (Check Google Map for public transport navigation, the route and bus number is very accurate, but the timing is not.
