Jialishan (加里山 / JiaLi Mountain) is located in in the Nanzhuang Township of Miaoli County, along the Jialishan mountain range. The range is regarded as the northern part of the “Western Thrust Fault Mountains.” The Jialishan range faces the Xueshan Range on the east, and the Alishan Range on the south. The area was once used by the Japanese to transport wood, camphor oil, citronella oil and coal down from the mountain slopes.

This trail is well maintained, but a relatively steep climb of over 4km (one-way), passing through beautiful pine forests, abandoned Japanese rail lines, and more forested beauty. This is a beautiful hike for intermediate level hikers in Taiwan. There are sections with ropes and technical climbing sections. It is a nice challenge for those who are just getting their feet dirty, but please determine your fitness level and capability
