Datun Mountain System: Guizikeng Hiking Trail 大屯山系-貴子坑親山步道

Anchor point

Introduction

This trail leaves from Zhongyang North Road Sec. 2 and 3 in Beitou, from which one takes Daoxiang Rd., then Xiushan Rd. or along the road beside Guizi River. After crossing Xiushan Bridge onto Zhonghe St., turn left onto Xiushan Road, cross the bridge at the intersection of the two rivers, turn right to Lane 159, Xiushan Rd., beside Shuimoukeng River, and walk about 550 meters to the Guizikeng Water and Soil Conservation Education Park and Xiaqingxue Trail entrance.

PictureThe uphill stone stairway section of Xiaqingxue Trail is rather steep; rows of cherry trees have been planted and maintained by Xiushan neighborhood residents. There are a public toilet and pavilion on the way to Shibiling; cheery trees next to the kiosk blossom in winter. After crossing the pine wood bridge over Guizikeng River, take the northerly uphill path at the fork way to reach Xiaqingxue which connects to the recreational tangerine farm near the Guanyun Bridge on Fuxing 3rd Rd. Visitors may take a left turn through Guizikeng Trail to Xiaopingding or take a U-turn and return to the Guizikeng Water and Soil Conservation Education Park and the entrance of Xiaqingxue Trail. The route is flat next to the rivers and good shade is provided by the trees on both sides, and there is a pavilion providing viewpoints from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Guandu Plain. The trail measures about 2.5km and takes about 1.5 hours to circle the mountain.

    步道陡 情人湖令人驚艷

    2019-06

    步道坡度比想像中陡,不常健行者體力會稍嫌吃力。下山後生態園區內的情人湖令人驚艷,涼風徐徐,適合坐在湖畔發呆賞鳥。

    親山步道旁邊有個新的生態園區,裡面有個很美麗的情人湖,整個園區環境很美,秋天可以看到落羽松,還有規劃露營區,很適合在走完步道後休息的好地方!

    有挑戰性的步道

    2017-03

    整個步道環繞一圈至少需要2.5小時,石板梯算平穩,但是爬升坡度陡,需要一點體力,護膝也建議穿戴,下山的樓梯很長對膝蓋不好的步行者很傷
