  • lovely in-town walk up a scenic hill. Paved, easy to get to, take public transit or good luck parking (possible but tough)

  • Good walk. Steep stairs but there's a handrail most of the way so it's hard but not too hard. Great views over Taipei once you get to the top. We went and night and it was stunning. Make sure to pack bug spray and water!
  • Great “hike” on a typical Taiwan trail mainly consisting of a lot of steps or well maintained stone paths (can be slippery when wet/ raining). Crowded on weekends but really accessible with nice views of Taipei 101. Make it a full morning adventure and continue on the trail over towards Nangang if you are feeling up to it.
