Description

A part of the Danlan Historic Trail, Jinzibei Historic Trail cuts across Sandiaoling, continues on to the Old Caoling Tunnel and stretches all the way to Lanyan Plain in Yilan County. Though less well-known than the Old Caoling Tunnel, it is equal in recreational value. The historical trail begins with a succession of upward slopes, which will take you to the famous Jinzibei with a 20-minute walk. At the summit there is an official tablet calling against unauthorized logging, an example of the country’s earliest fight against deforestation. The nearby Houtong Shrine, a historical monument of the Japanese Occupation, is worth a visit, too.
