This is a very easy and quick hike if you don’t have a lot of time or just want to get out of the busy streets of the city for a little while. It offers pretty decent views of the city in certain spots. Not bad for a quick little hike.

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

Round trip 95 peak...Stair trail, great view, recommended

Great hike. VERY steep sections with ropes at the top of tiger mountain

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.

Best walk and geology ever. Not strenuous but very sweaty. Butterfly park, really breathtaking and easy to get to from Taipei

Completed about 5 miles, moderate, out and back to the highest peak overlooking Taipei City. Trail and directions was not marked properly.

Would love to re-visit once it’s sunny and clear, and not raining. ;)
