MOUNT MAWUBUA (馬武霸山)
Mount Mawuba sits just inside the borders of Shei-pa National Park, deep inside Taichung’s mountainous Heping District. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful walk, and best of all, it doesn’t require any permits.
MOUNT DONGMAO (東卯山)
The fifth highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes, Mount Dongmao is a thoroughly enjoyable day hike in Taichung’s Heping District. Despite the trail’s relative ease, it doesn’t hold back on the views.
MOUNT SANTING (三汀山)
Santing Shan is one of Taiwan’s 100 Minor Peaks, and can be reached after a short bus ride from Taichung Station.
TAI’AN HIKING TRAIL (泰安登山步道)
Tai’an Hiking Trail is a short trail in Taichung’s northeastern Houli District. As well as the walk, you can enjoy a wander around Tai’an Railway Cultural Park, see the stunning red slopes of Huoyan Shan from a distance, and crack out your best model pose on the picturesque Da’an River Iron Bridge.
MOUNT MALUN (馬崙山)
At 2305m high, Mount Malun is the second highest among Guguan’s Seven Heroes, but despite its lofty nature, it’s not a difficult climb. The long trail climbs gently (well almost gently), through different types of forest landscape and past the remains of an old logging village.
MOUNT WU WO WEI (屋我尾山)
At 1796m above sea level Mount Wu Wo Wei is the third highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes. There are two routes to the peak, and since this post details the harder of the two, you can expect to have the peaceful forest to yourself for most of the walk.
MOUNT POJINJIA (波津加山)
The fourth highest of the Guguan Seven Heroes, Mount Pojinjia is a steep, but straightforward climb that rewards all of your hard work with the occasional spectacular view over distant cloud-capped peaks.
ZHI GAO ZHEN TRAIL LOOP (知高圳O型縱走)
Zhi Gao Zhen is a small canal in Wuri that draws water from Fazi River to irrigate farms in Nantun, Wuri and Dadu. The shaded and well-paved trail stretches from Wuri to Dadu District and with the sound of the water playing as backdrop music, it is a gentle trail, perfect for a weekend stroll with the family. If you have a little more energy, you can turn it into a loop by adding a short scramble up to a low overlook with views over Changhua.
YUANZUI SHAN to SHAOLAI SHAN (鳶嘴稍來山步道)
An exhilarating and energising trip up to some stupendous scenery. This walk takes in two peaks over 2000m, with stunning views from exposed ridges as well as the hushed calm of old forests.
BA XIAN SHAN TO TANG MA DA SHAN (八唐縱走)
A strenuous all day-er which is guaranteed to leave you with a healthy appetite. The hard work is worth it for anyone who loves big, old forests.
