Mount Datun, the third highest peak in Yangmingshan, offers one of the finest views in the National Park but is far less popular than nearby Seven Star Mountain (Mt. Qixing). Weather permitting, it is an especially beautiful place in late November/early December during the silver grass season when the entire area appears to shimmer in the sunlight. This hike climbs the mountain from the north, descends to the grassy plains of Erziping, and then continues southwards towards Beitou. If there's time we'll detour to Miantian Mt. and the small but well-preserved volcanic crater at Towards Heaven Pond. Our alternate route will be to go directly to Qingtiangong and take the bus back from there. The hike, completely on surfaced paths, has many steps, some steep, but is suitable for hikers who are comfortable climbing the Tianmu steps. Sturdy walking/hiking shoes are a must. Bring at least 1.5 L of water, a packed lunch and rain/sun protection as needed. This hike ends at the Beitou MRT Station.
