Either I’m out of shape, I’m not used to the weather yet, or this trail was much more difficult than I thought it would be! Lots of stairs, but also lots of great views, resting places, and toilets.

Amazing trail. Every bit is paved throughout and great views for Taipei Basin at different peaks. The elevation is higher than AllTrails recorded. My Apple Watch recorded 1,550ft

This is a cool route. I'm pretty sure my GPS followed the Red Route. I will just note that there were some good rope climbs that I find fun and prefer the adventurous less traveled routes, but just FYI you may want to think twice about bringing kids or for less fit people. The route down was complete opposite, crowded w/ tourists and paved.

First to Review

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. Taking the trail from one end to the other, we experienced multiple small temples / worship areas. I'd definitely recommend this hike if the weather is good; I don't think I'd want to be doing these steep stairs in the 80 degree weather, nor would I want to be doing them if they were slippery from rain. But when we went, with temps in the low to mid 60s, it was perfect.
