Wuliao Jian Hiking Trail

This is one of the finest day hikes near Taipei. Wuliao Jian (五寮尖登山步道) is similar to Xiaozi Shan Trail in that it has a number of roped ridge areas. Some areas also require ropes to get up and down - some slopes are very steep, high and almost vertical. Make sure you buy a pair of (cheap) white cloth gloves from the store at the start of the trail, these will help protect your hands when using the ropes.

The hike starts next to an isolated shop (shown on the map). The full route is around 7km, with hiking time around 5 hours (or more).
