The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Dunxu Vocational High School of Business and Technology (near Longfenggu in Yangmingshan National Park) bus stop (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Xinbeitou Train Station (Google Map Directions). It is best to break this walk up and take the bus between Mituo Temple (Google Map Directions) bus stop and Beitou Park bus stop (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 6.6km (4.1mi) in about 3.5hr, 2.1km of which is by bus from the Mituo Temple (Qinglian Bridge) bus stop to Beitou Park bus stop.
  • Grade: Easy. Not long (about a third of which is by bus) and rather flat except for the staircase leading to and from Longfenggu. Be careful when it is raining (it often gets wet in Yangmingshan National Park) as the path does get rather slippery. The section in Xinbeitou and Beitou Thermal Valley is very easy, flat and nicely paved.
  • Date Walked: 28th of November 2019

Hello, I'm Marc and welcome to metrotrekker.

Be it seeing the city sights, exploring parklands and gardens, urban walks or day-hikes in the city outskirts, the metrotrekker website details walking routes and hiking trails accessible by foot and public transport in metropolitan areas.

The metrotrekker website provides you with all the details required for metropolitan exploration:

  • start and finish options (particularly by public transport)
  • photos/videos
  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
  • and more improvements and resources are continually being added

So let's get outside and explore our great metropolitan areas by foot. Click Here to begin exploring with metrotrekker.

Pleasant Trails,


Did you enjoy a walk or hike on metrotrekker?

Do you visit metrotrekker regularly to find inspiration for exploration in your city or a city you plan to visit?

Is the metrotrekker website quick to load, easy to navigate and without intrusive advertisements and a hard sell mentality?

If so, please show your support and contribute so I can continue to provide more walking and hiking information without the intrusive advertisements and third-party tracking typical of the internet. Also, I'm a terrible salesman so you won't find any product placement or recommendations on metrotrekker. I just want to keep it simple with good information to help you explore the worlds great metropolitan areas by foot and public transport.

Unfortunately, hosting a secure and reliable website isn't free (and don't get me started about the software and travel costs!) so if I could recoup some of the cost I would be more than delighted.

To recoup some of the costs, metrotrekker uses a Pay What You Want (PWYW) model via the secure and reputable PayPal. Just click on the link below to be directed to my PayPal.Me metrotrekker account where you can PWYW via your secure PayPal account.

Thank you for your contribution. It is greatly appreciated.
