Xinyi, Taipei City Map
VIEW FULL MAP

A very lush and shady trail, with fantastic views of the city from a plethora of lookout points. we went on Dec 9 2019 and did not experience any mosquitoes. This trail is essentially 100% stairs constructed of stone, and thus if it is dry out, any pair of tennis shoes or sandals will work (we even saw a local do this trail in dress shoesthe .... not that if recommended that). The stairs are quite steep in many sections, and the hike provides an excellent workout. And if a lower body workout isn't enough for you, you'll find a stop or two along the way with outdoor gym stations for pullups and bench presses. Tip: there is a tiny storefront near the entrance selling waters for only20$NT each, so have some cash with you if you want to purchase.

Easy trail with high ROI - pretty spectacular views of the city and Taipei 101. Try to avoid weekends or peak hours as the crowds can get quite trying.

A short climb to the top with worthwhile views over the city. It was way too crowded when we went though (for sunset). What should be a 20 minute climb took far longer due to the queues up each of the stairs. Would be better at sunrise perhaps.

Very rewarding, very steep hike. There are some boulders at the top top that you can easily scramble onto for some photo opportunities, but be warned, it can get very crowded and lines form for the best photo spots. There is also a small gym with a few weights, pull up bars and dip bars at the top.

Well maintained suburb trail crossing Nangang Mountain through the ridge. We took the exit to China University of Science and Technology (中華科大) for some extra miles and reduced slope during descending. Lots of shades and resting spots. Several public restrooms on the way.

A quick little hike up steps for breathtaking views of Taipei. Approximately 20 minutes to the top, but you will work up a sweat!

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.

I'd say more moderate than easy. lots of temples, 2.5 miles one way.... don't make the same mistake I did.

It's a nice hike with some tough short climbing parts. But the view over the city is amazing.

Lots of stairs, but so worth it.

As with most hiking trails near Taipei, this trail has many, many steep stairs. This trail is mostly paved so the hiking is relatively easy (except for climbing the stairs). About 20% is off the paved trails. These turn off the pavement onto smaller, steeper trials. Where the trails steepens, there are stepping stones to assist with footing. Unfortunately, the stones are covered with moss, causing them to be slippery. Occasionally, these trails are exposed to steep drop-offs. So care but be given, especially when coming down. These trails may be considered moderate in difficulty. There is one section that I would consider particularly challenging. It has switchbacks with each one steeper than the previous one. The final two are extremely difficult, with the last one almost a vertical climb. This section has ropes to assist with footholds cut into the boulders. This section would be difficult. Bring plenty of water. Wear shoes with good traction. Be sure to bring the map on a device with connectivity. The trail branches off the main trail many times and if you don't have your location marked on the AllTrails map, then it is easy to miss a turn off. Over all, a good hike. Would have enjoyed more if there were less paved trails.
