This trail leaves from Zhongyang North Road Sec. 2 and 3 in Beitou, from which one takes Daoxiang Rd., then Xiushan Rd. or along the road beside Guizi River. After crossing Xiushan Bridge onto Zhonghe St., turn left onto Xiushan Road, cross the bridge at the intersection of the two rivers, turn right to Lane 159, Xiushan Rd., beside Shuimoukeng River, and walk about 550 meters to the Guizikeng Water and Soil Conservation Education Park and Xiaqingxue Trail entrance.

PictureThe uphill stone stairway section of Xiaqingxue Trail is rather steep; rows of cherry trees have been planted and maintained by Xiushan neighborhood residents. There are a public toilet and pavilion on the way to Shibiling; cheery trees next to the kiosk blossom in winter. After crossing the pine wood bridge over Guizikeng River, take the northerly uphill path at the fork way to reach Xiaqingxue which connects to the recreational tangerine farm near the Guanyun Bridge on Fuxing 3rd Rd. Visitors may take a left turn through Guizikeng Trail to Xiaopingding or take a U-turn and return to the Guizikeng Water and Soil Conservation Education Park and the entrance of Xiaqingxue Trail. The route is flat next to the rivers and good shade is provided by the trees on both sides, and there is a pavilion providing viewpoints from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Guandu Plain. The trail measures about 2.5km and takes about 1.5 hours to circle the mountain.
