What to explore at Four Beast Mountains Hike Trip?
There really isn’t a typical itinerary for these trails. There are dozens of trailheads that mostly start on Xinyi Road or just off of Songren Road. The trails can be completed in loops so you come back around to your starting area or come out on the other side of the mountains. One could spend just a few minutes going to the Stone Garden to take photos of Taipei 101 and the Taipei City skyline, or spend the whole day exploring the dozens of temples and side trails that crisscross the mountains. The main trails are also lit at night, making this a 24hour place of adventure!
What to take:
Sturdy hiking boots
Hiking poles (optional)
Toiletries and personal medicine
Wide brimmed hat
A change of clothes for the drive back
transport, accident insurance, permits, lunch, guiding and any permit and entry fees.
