EASY HIKES IN TAOYUAN COUNTY

Walks listed with the most recent at the top. There might be some overlap between easy and moderate hikes.

ZHIXING OLD TRAIL (知性古道)


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.

GUI SHAN MOUNTAINTOP LOOP (龜山山頂小O型縱走)


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.

FUYUAN ANCIENT BANYAN TRAIL (福源山步道)

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).


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.
