走過了3.8公里的台灣山毛櫸國家步道，正是山毛櫸轉換成金黃色澤的季節，雖然高低落差很大，到達海拔100公尺高，但是看到了雲海及山毛櫸林海，真是令人讚嘆不已！ more »After walking through 3.8 kilometers of Taishan Beech Country's national trail, it is the mountains and woolinto into the golden color of the season, but the high and low difference is very large, to the elevation of 100 meters high, but to see the Bohai Sea and the sea of beech forest, it is really amazing!
到了就馬上衝去買10:30的蹦蹦車票，其實也就是台灣僅次於阿里山的高山小火車。可是整個搭乘蹦蹦車的過程，都霧茫茫的看不到風景，有點可惜。蹦蹦車是從太平山搭往茂興車站。回程是搭12:00。時間充足到茂興步道可以走完主道跟上下環道。 茂興懷舊步道，早期是運送木材的軌道。茂興懷舊步道縮減為 900 公尺。還有上下環線 500 公尺，有許多美麗的樹木和蕨類，手機照相完全停不下了，非常喜歡樹干上張了青苔，特... more »At 10:30, the jumping ticket is the mountain fire in Alishan, Taiwan. But the whole ride on the jumping journey, are vast can not see the scenery, there is a pity. The jumping jump is a walk from Taiping Mountain to Maui Station. The return trip is 12:00. There is plenty of time to go to the Main Track to follow the lower path. The Mao-Tao trail, which was the first of its part, was a route for the delivery of wood. The Mau-O Trail is 900 meters. There are up and down 500 meters, there are beautiful trees and crickets, hand camera completely stop, very happy to dry on the moss, very beautiful. Even if you get up, most of it is clear, and it's no rain. The trails are very sloppy, so they fit in the same size. You must wear warm. The second scene is the world's most beautiful 28 paths, the only entry into the "SunQing ancient trail", located in the Taiping Mountain, the trail to stretch ...
Beautiful scenery and trails. The journey up the park is quite long but worth it. Just remember to check the website for toilet stops as there are not many toilets here. The park is less crowded in the morning and tends to be more crowded nearer to noon.
If you like some moderate hiking, this is the place you must visit in the northern Taiwan. There are many hiking trails in this park. The trails are in the forest. You can actually smell the wonderful scents in the forest and immediately feel relaxed and happy. It is also very good for the elders to walk on some easy trails. The forest has a abundant ecological system. You can hear the monkeys on the tree top or run into some beautiful long tail elegant bird in the bushes. The walk on the trails may be full of surprises. Get you camera ready because you will never know what you are gonna see in any turns. The food and beverage in the park is not a 3 star restaurant. But personally, I would rather visit a underdeveloped place than a overdeveloped point. This is a good getaway during a weekend.
