Jiantan Mountain is 153 meters above sea level and is located inside the Yuanshan Scenic Area in Shilin District of Taipei City. It is situated behind the Grand Hotel and is also the hill nearest to the City center. The trail along the ridge will also lead to the other mountains. It is an easy and relaxing trail for hikers to take in the panoramic views of the city, and it is accessible via a variety of public transportation means.

Jiantan Mountain Trail
The entrance to the mountain is located at Sec. 4 of Zhongshan N. Rd. near MRT Jiantan Station. This was once a military control zone and also a conservation area; thus, its natural habitat and ecology are well preserved. In addition, numerous manually cultivated plants can be seen along the trail, enriching it with greenness and vitality.

This trail has become a popular venue for nearby residents doing their morning exercises. The “Old Place” for instance, is one of those famous “exercise spots”. Along the trail, one can see the Grand Hotel and Keelung Riverside Park. At the end of this easy-to-traverse trail you’ll come out at Lane 165 of Tongbei Rd., near Beian Rd. intersection.

Beautiful Night Scenes from Jiantan Mountain
The night scenery of Jiantan Mountain Trail has always been popular, and not without reason. Located at a high altitude in the midst of a bustling city, coupled with airplanes flying low across the night sky above, the ambience it generates always creates excitement and anticipation; the place has thus become a popular hangout for young couples and students. What adds to the allure, are the delicacies of Shilin Night Market, and it is no wonder that the trail has more hikers during the nighttime than daytime!

    開車從內湖上山,一路上空氣風景很不錯,常常有很多地方可以遠眺風景,到了山頂看到的風景,跟在半路看到的風景一樣,覺得有些可惜。 沿路有一些簡單的咖啡車,山頂也有咖啡廳跟一些小吃(沒有特別看到有素食,有看到咖啡廳有鬆餅,但沒有入內用餐),因為都是坡,沒有很好遛狗,再加上有公墓,暫停一下就離開了。 從內湖開上山約 25 分鐘左右,沿途及山頂有很多重型機車,也是另外一種風景。

    騎單車到五指山頂 挑戰十足 風景優美


    選擇以騎單車的方式前往五指山,非常享受沿途緩慢爬升挑戰自我的過程。 登五指山頂的選擇很多,可以從內湖長青路、汐止汐萬路,另外一邊則為從陽明山上風櫃嘴。各有不同的難度等級和沿途風光,值得大家來挑戰一下
