Taiwan’s first silent trail
Distance 4.8 km
In the winter, the platform close to the western end of the trail is a popular sunrise viewing location.
Tips and hintsThere’s a boot washing station beside the toilet block.
Getting thereTaipingshan is accessed by driving inland from Yilan, then crossing the vast expanse of Lanyang River and driving up Taiping Forestry Road. You’ll have to stop at the toll booth to pay the entrance and parking fee, then continue up the road for quite a way until you reach the carpark.
ParkingThere are carparks at both trailheads.

EquipmentA hiking stick will help on the slippery sections, we wore trainers rather than hiking boots and it was fine, but just be aware that whatever you wear will end up caked in mud.
