Gouyinqin Old Trail Hike

"Gouyinqin” in Taiwanese means “a sleeping dog." This trail gets its name from the landscape, which is quite flat and looks like a dog that is lying on its stomach. From the Jiantan MRT Station, we will take a bus out to the trailhead, about a 40-minute ride. The hike itself has three distinct parts. First, we will hike through a bamboo forest. There are some stairs in this section. With good lighting, the green bamboo is stunning. The second part is along a small canal. The third and last part brings us to Yangde Blvd, where we will catch a bus back to either the Jiantan or Shilin MRT Station. This is a moderate hike, about 5km with about 250 meters ascending and 500 meters descending. The trail is mostly paved, suitable for regular and less-experienced hikers. Wear proper hiking shoes. Bring your EasyCard, water, lunch and sun/rain protection.
