Junjianyan is an ideal site for school field trips owing to its convenient location in Taipei's suburbs and its special geological and botanical features.
PictureWith an elevation of just 185m and numerous easily accessible paths, Junjianyan is popular with hill walkers everyday. Ascending from in front of the Yangming University campus research building (about 800m away from MRT-Qilian station) takes around 30 minutes by means of a 500m-long stone stairway. A fork in the middle of this path offers the choice of paved and railed route to the right and natural sandstone to the left. The huge white rock on the top resembles a battleship, which is the origin of the name in Chinese. This offers magnificent views back over rural and urban Taipei. An alternative route, also by means of a 500m-long stairway, leaves from the MRT-Shipai station behind the Veteran General Hospital. Mid-altitude plants such as Pieris taiwanensis Hayata and rough-leaved holly are found alongside the path.
Danfeng Mountain, at an elevation of 117m, is reached about 350m by a path that leaves from beside the General Chen Ji-tang Mausoleum on Qiyan Road in Old Beitou. The path continues up to Zhaominjing Temple, as does another that starts from Danfeng Heights at Lane 201, Qiyan Road. The temple, also called Lovers’ Temple is located on Chongyang 7th Road. Taking the southeasterly path from the temple, Junjianyan is about 1.2 kilometers away.
Two other routes also lead to this spot, both starting at the Yangming Mountain First Cemetery located at the intersection of Xingyi Road and Quanyuan Road. From 220-12 Quanyuan Road, follow the uphill path inside the cemetery to a fork about 160m further on; the westerly route of Huangxi Mountain (281 meters above sea level) path runs about 1.1 kilometers to Junjianyan, the southerly route about 1.4 kilometers.

好展望、易完成An easy hike from Yang Ming University entrance. Beautiful rocks along the way. Nice view of Taipei up there. Easy trails and full of greens. Kids playing racing car models on the rocks. 從陽明大學入口開始爬，很快就擺脫了都市的喧鬧，一路往上奇石有許多，無論是遠眺對岸山頭或爬到軍艦岩平台，無需過人體力。可一路爬到照明禪寺，很好走。 台北好爬、簡易的登山步道。
Beautiful sunsetEasy hiking trail with beautiful view, you can see Yangmingshan view from here, I did not climb up to the big rock yet, next time won’t miss it!
Pekín (Beijing), China
Beautiful Hike!This was a great hike up with sweeping views of the city and ability to watch planes take off and land at the regional airport. Mosquito repellent highly recommended and bring lots of water. Neither are available right before and during your hike.
Beautiful sunrise hike!The morning glow over the rocky outcrop makes for a beautiful hike at sunrise. The trail is not too difficult and is accessible from the Shipai metro station. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get to the starting point in the National Yang-Ming University. Good to visit on a weekday as it could get crowded on weekends. Even at 6 am there were already quite a few people hiking.
Prefectura de Tokio, Japón
Easy hiking trailIt's very close to my home so we always go there for exercise. There might be quite crowded during weekends so I urge you to go there on weekdays. It's pretty easy to reach the top and it's surely the best spot to overlook the whole tianmu and yangmingshan from the top!
