Thanks for your interest in signing up for the Out in Taiwan private tour with Parkbus Taiwan along the famous Caoling Historic Trail between New Taipei City and the Pacific Coast in Yilan County!
After our pick-up from Taipei Main Station, we will be dropped off in Gongliao District, New Taipei City at the beginning of the Caoling Historic Trail. From here we will walk for 20 minutes along the traditional trail that has been converted into a small roadway to just past Yuanwangkeng Riverside Park.
The trail transitions into a stone and compact soil trail and is the start of the Caoling Historic Trail for about 1.5 hours. At the intersection of the Taoyuan Valley Trail, we will continue to hike along the ridgeway and grasslands of the coastal mountains with spectacular views down along the east coast of Taiwan and Yilan County. After about a 1.5 hour hike along this section, we will hike back down the coast to Dali Visitor Center to explore the local temple, visitor center and meet the bus.
The total distance covered will be around 10km, and is very accessible for beginners and novice hikers.
