Caoling Historic Trail

Taipei, Taiwan

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Dali Train Station (Google Map Directions), the most obvious point at the southern end of the trail, and ended at the Earth God Shrine at the intersection of Yuanwangkeng St and the highway where there is a bus stop (Google Map Directions). This is just one option to access the northern terminus of the trail. You can also walk from Fulong Train Station (Google Map Directions) via the Huzishan Bikeway or the main roads.
  • Length: 9.1km (5.7mi) in about 3.5hr
  • Grade: Medium to Hard. Paved and road surfaces throughout. Large ascent and descent. Glad I did this in winter, would be very tough in summer. The southernmost ascent/descent is rather exposed (it was very windy the day I was up there).
  • Date Walked: 4th of December 2015
