Walks listed with the most recent at the top. There might be some overlap between easy and moderate hikes.
A short and simple Sunday afternoon type of stroll. For anyone wanting more of a workout, there’s always the option to include the adjoining Wu Jiu Tong Trail.
A quiet leg-stretch through the hills and farmland of Guishan township. Come in April or May to enjoy the tung blossom that gives the trail its name.
A leisurely loop walk which starts out from a very ‘Taiwan-feeling’ village community. You’ll pass university buildings, small ponds and a temple as well as meander through allotments and a graveyard. On clear days, there are views of layered hills out towards Sanxia and beyond from the easternmost point of the walk.
A gentle and shaded forest park, walk – come here to get a feel for how the locals like to spend family weekends together.
A quiet and pretty hiking trail just outside of Taipei. Along the way you can enjoy quirks of nature like the thousand year banyan tree and a lily pond half way up a mountain (well, it’s more of a big hill really).
An enjoyable stroll through shady forest with views of the HSR.
A nice shaded wander around a little strip of wooded land.
A moderate afternoon hike up an old cattle path with a minor peak at the top.
Let nature indulge you in this wild hot spring.
Short and simple walk with views over Taoyuan’s Yangmei District.
Short, easy-access walk around a reservoir for days when you're not up for climbing a mountain.
This is currently an unpaid side passion project and I will continue doing it just for the love of it, but of course if you like what I do and feel inclined to chip in a few dollars for transport and time then I would appreciate it immensely. You can find me on either Ko-fi or Buy Me a Coffee.
