Taiwan - Ski Lift

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

The trail is marginal at best (actually you would be surprised at what some people call "trails" here in Taiwan). Taipei is an overpopulated and crowded city. With the number of hikers that use the nearby trails surrounding Taipei, it is questionable if one should be mountain biking them. The hill climb to the top on paved surface is a good workout though do start early to beat the summer heat and traffic. If you choose to take the trail down you will find several loosely connected sections of stone pathways and stairs. Though some have labled it single track, the amount of stones embedded in the ground leaves me searching for actual dirt.

Trail Directions
Once in Neihu, turn left at the Burger King and following the road around 'till you see a 7Eleven on the corner (turn right). All the locals will bike to the top of the mountain from here (pretty much all the foreigners will drive to the top or catch a ride in a cab). Trail begins near some tea shops at the top of the hill.

Summary:
This is the second good trail I've come across in Taiwan. In the city of Taoyuan, the trail decends around 1 mile and has a few options. 3 or so top sections and 7 near the bottom. The top is fun and mellow with the middle section getting really steep or two go arounds. One is a dirt road and the other is part single track and part sigle track road. The bottom has a lot of fun little jumps wit ha few bigger ones. I like the road gap the best. Dirt is hard on top with alot of round marble rocks and the lower area is darker grippy dirt with more round rolling rocks. Overall this is one of the best ridding areas yet in Taiwan. Be sure to stop by the local bike shop for directions and a guide.

Recommended Route:
I don't know the area well so call the local bike shop at 03 355 9534. They where great, shuttled us all day and the owners son guided us around. Thanks guys.
