This hike begins with a walk around one side of Jinlong Lake. Wandering along a quiet road we will see many small farms on the way to the trailhead. We will stop for a quick visit at Cui lake then make our way up the mountain. This hike offers moderate inclines and declines with ropes for assistance. There are some wonderful views of the Xizhi Mountains and Taipei City as we loop around the trails. The trails, mostly along well-used dirt paths or wooden steps, are usually full of life and it’s not uncommon to spot magpies, eagles, barbets, spiders, and lizards. There are several ways down the mountain and we will choose a trail based upon the speed of the group. Once out of the mountains, we will go back along the small farm road and loop around the opposite side of Jinlong lake before catching taxis back to the Donghu MRT. Wear sturdy shoes with good grip; bring change for shared taxis, lunch, water and rain/sun protection as needed. .
