HikingGreat!

Well marked, lots of steps at first, but it’s worth it once you get the the sky walk part!

I love that this trail is a good workout.. everything is uphill! I took an Uber from Taipei to the trailhead since I didn't want to figure out the bus. As mentioned in a few blogs..there are 2 starting points: one to the left of the restrooms (bring tissues/toilet paper) is the east peak trail and one further up by the parking "lot" (left of the stores selling drinks/snacks) is the west peak trail. We are so glad we took the trail next to the store because 1) there was maybe 20+ people going up the trail by the bathroom 2) the views are much nicer where we started 3) Going up this way is better than coming down this way. The way we took had some stairs but not as much as the other trail. I truly enjoyed this trail because it had more climbing! Of course there are ropes if you need to hold onto them. Honestly, there are signs everywhere and the trails are so obvious. We did the loop from West peak to some peak (forgot the name) then went down east peak (all stairs). I can definitely see this hike being scary if it's raining or just rained. It can be slippery but the weather was awesome and it isn't that bad at all. There are 60+ year olds owning this hike. I love this trail because it's lots of climbing and it just feels so adventurous! it's also great views. Coming down east peak was all shade which was nice but no views..kinda wished I went back down west peak just to see the lush green mountains again. Lots of great picture spots but this place is not for ones who are seeking solitude. These trails are very crowded and there were even tour groups of 20+ people so it's very loud and you can hear people across the ridges. Either way, I enjoyed it. I hitch hiked (so thankful that Taiwanese people are so nice!) to Shiding and called an Uber there. Also got to walk around which was nice. Hiked April 1, 2018

Great trail but very tired because we ran out of our 1.2 liter water supply.
