The first part of our hike to Mt. Dinghu is on a quiet dirt trail, surrounded by lush greenery in the wild woods (about 1.2km with 270m ascending). The trail is narrow and we recommend long pants because it could be a bit overgrown. After we reach Mt. Dinghu the trail becomes wider and there are many steps. Although it is hard work to climb up all the stairs, the forest is beautiful (about 2.5km with 200m ascending and 200m descending). When we get to Mt. Zhongzheng we will have an amazing view as our reward. From this vantage point, we can see Mt. Qixing, which is the highest mountain in Taipei, as well as Mt. Shamao. After some time to rest and eat our lunch, we will go down by stairs (380m descending) and walk to catch our bus back to the MRT. The total distance of this hike is about 5.1km with 470m ascending and 580m descending. We recommend a good level of fitness to join this fun, but challenging hike. Please wear sturdy hiking shoes with a good grip. Bring water, a packed lunch and rain/sun/insect protection as needed.
