Thanks for your interest in signing up for the Parkbus Taiwan linear trail or, thru hike, along the famous Caoling Historic Trail between New Taipei City and the Pacific Coast in Yilan County!

Join Parkbus Taiwan for an amazing day out hiking along nearly 12kms of stunning trail on the Caoling Historic Trail. This is a linear trail, or thru hike, making this experience very difficult to complete without your own car. Parkbus Taiwan will offer direct, reservable and same-day return bus service from Taipei.

This trip will drop passengers off in Gongliao District in New Taipei City, where hikers will walk roughly 20 minutes to the beginning of the trail. From September to November hikers will get to hike amongst the Silvergrass, of which the area gets its name. The bus will then pick the entire group up near Dali Train Station at the end of the day. Participants must understand that this is a linear hiking day along the Caoling Historic Trail only. There will be no return transportation from Gongliao District. This trip also requires participants to have decent fitness endurance levels to hike approximately 12km over modest elevation. For the majority of the trail, this is not a technical hike, but the final 2km descent into Dali can be tiring for those with trouble walking down steps.
  • Transportation-only service with drop-off at park visitor center
  • At destination, participants can hike together or by themselves
  • Several kms of beginner and intermediate hiking trails
  • Fantastic Visitor Centre 
  • Secluded picnic areas
  • Small shop selling drinks, snacks and food
  • Plenty of wildlife including endemic birds & butterflies, Formosan Rock Macaques, multiple species of squirrels, weasels, civets and more!
