There is an interesting cross-over of two historical trails deep in the mountains above Taipei. The entrance point is easy reachable by S15 bus from MRT Jiantan Station. The hike would be at least 3 hours, could also be extended by a few more hours exploring more branches of the main route if participants wish, but we shall rather be on the safe side with weather in the late afternoon.

The approximate plan is as follows:
07: Protected content Gathering until bus leaves
08: Protected content Take the bus to Qingtiangang
09: Protected content Hiking to the end of the trail
10: Protected content Break / Picnic for one hour
11: Protected content Walk back to the beginning
13: Protected content Take bus back to Jiantan

Protected content

This is not a difficult hike, but you need to have the usual mountain gear including mountain shoes, rain wear, mountain hat, sun screen, enough water (2L) and food as there are no restaurants along the trail. Coming with sneakers is discouraged. Please recognize that you are responsible for your own safety regarding collecting information before the hike about the trail and during the event.

Looking forward to your participation. Please message me also a day before the event if you like to join so that we can find each other. After the hike we shall enjoy tea together and eventually even have dinner later.
