Hiking the Erziping Trail in Yangmingshan National Park

Taipei, Taiwan

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Xinbeitou Train Station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the bus stop at the Erziping Visitor Center (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 8.9km (5.5mi) in about 5hr
  • Grade: Hard. Much of the hike is uphill alongside quiet roads and up staircases. Well paved and sign posted. In the misty conditions, some of the cobblestone paths were very slippery. It does flatten out between the Erziping Recreation Spot and the Erziping Visitors Center (probably explains why this section was much more populated).
  • Date Walked: 2nd of December 2015
