Walks listed with the most recent at the top. There might be some overlap between moderate and challenging hikes.
DATIELIAO OLD TRAIL to BAISHI SHAN and JINMIAN SHAN (打鐵寮古道/白石山/十三分山/金面山)
This varied walk follows a beautiful reclaimed historic trail alongside a stream and then climbs to a ridge line with views over Taoyuan City as well as some of the county’s more remote villages.
FUXING JIAN SHAN (復興尖山)
This trail in Taoyuan’s Fuxing District boasts dramatic mountainscapes, wonderful old forest scenery, some seriously tiring walking and just a touch of adrenalin-stoking danger.
SHINIU SHAN (石牛山)
This unexpectedly enjoyable loop just south of Shimen reservoir combines a fun upwards scramble with attractive views from the peak and a much gentler route down.
SILENG HOT SPRING (四稜溫泉)
A challenging climb will lead you to this wild hotspring hidden in the shade of a valley.
GALAHE NATURAL HOT SPRING (嘎拉賀溫泉)
Let nature indulge you in this wild hot spring.
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.
