Monday:open 24 hours




There are two easterly paths that run around the mountain from the backyard of Xintian Temple (Zhongyi Temple) in Beitou. Pines and bamboos growing beside the stairway paths provide shade for more than 90% of the trail. Xiaobalifen Mountain (elevation 232m) provides views of the Guandu Plain and Guanyin Mountain. Ropes have been attached to help people climb the steeper sections.

PictureOn the small flat land on the mountain have two graveyards, one power tower and a BMX (Bicycle Motocross) training course. Following the path which runs from northeast towards southwest, Daoxiang Road or Taipei Highway No.3 in Tamsui is about 750m away in northeast. Walking towards southwest of the path, the Zhuwei and Tamsui River estuaries are in sight from the open area on the mountain. Taking the unpaved path down the slope along the ridge is about 400m and can arrive to the intersection at Lane 30, Zhongyang North Road Section 4 (going north to Fengdanbailu, southwest to Northern Taiwan Institute of Science and Technology, south to Taoyuan Junior High School, Chen Huai-gong Memorial Hall and Xingtian Temple).

The Xingtian Temple entrance is located in the south of the intersection about 150m away. The entire hillside path is about 2 kilometers long and takes about 1.5 hour to walk. The facilities on the path located in the backyard of Xingtian Temple are well-maintained, which make it the best site for the residents doing morning exercise.

    步道算好走, 但山頂沒風景,被樹擋住, 只有一個打印台, 這有一片大草原, 還有祖先的別墅, 在過去一點點有嘎嘮別山三角點, 下山有兩條, 一條是關渡站往台藝大, 一條是忠義站往行天宮, 一星兩分,我給六分。 評分:6/10分。

    忠義捷運站二號出口往和信醫院的路上,風景非常優美、不論艷陽高照或陰雨綿綿、、都有可看之處、、 尤其是三、四月木棉花盛開時更是值得一看、、 二號出口可以通往和信醫院、或轉往大度路,也可以去忠義街頭、、、
