More walking than hiking. Paved for the most part. Beautiful scenery and awesome food stands on the trail. Especially the sausage and tea!

Nice view from the top of mountain. Maybe About 3hours or more less include lunch time ,can come back to the bottom.

Easy stairs. Busy. Great view.

The view is amazing. But careful when you get to Tigermountain. The trail is covered in bushes and it requires serious climbing. It is also not well maintained, with robes missing. Not recommended in particular after rain.

Very well maintained and paved path. NT$80 to get in. Tourists cluster around the big formation areas but it doesn’t take much to get away from them. After passing those areas, I only saw three other groups the whole time. Great views. Great formations. Beautiful water. Some breeze.

Nice setting.

Nice trail although at the beginning very busy and so we took a small extra d-tour which took us 2 extra hours. For not experienced people a good trail and giving a good first impression of nature in Taiwan.

Involved hiking through a very luscious jungle environment, so lots of cool plant life throughout. You also get some good views of the city and coast! We we stayed hot and sweaty the entire hike but it is shaded for most of the trail. Lots of incline, but also some level ground and downhill. Once you reach the halfway point you will find a pavilion where locals brew tea and offer it (for free) to hikers! I recommend starting on the north side of the loop first, it is way less steep and has a more established path. Be careful on the second half of the loop (south side), the trail system gets very convoluted when coming down the mountain.

Nice little hike that gives you sweeping views of the cape. The trail is mostly paved and has many rest stops/pavilions along the way.

You must obtain a permit before hiking this trail! Which isn't too hard, but plan in advance, especially if you want to hike on the weekend. It was raining on and off when we went, so we didn't have any views at the top of the cliffs. The cliffs were still a lot of fun to hike on though, and the vegetation on the way up is spectacular.

A nice easy trail with a lot of stairs in the beginning. There is a viewpoint with benches to relax about halfway. Definitely bring mosquito repellent.

The app gives a fairly complete list of hikes, it provides a GPS, and can record a trace of the route.

The app provides a powerful list of hikes.

The view was fantastic along the whole trail. However, it requires high fitness level. The trail condition is poor after rain, there will be mud everywhere and the slope is incredibly sharp. Be really to get dirty and enjoy the scenery.
