Hushan (Mt. Tiger) is one of the low elevation mountains inside the Sishou Mountain Citizen Forest Area. It is 140 meters above sea level and forms a natural barrier at Taipei City’s southeastern section. The terrain is high on the west and low on the east, and on its peak is a sundial for observing the movement of the sun. The path is paved with sandstone and shale. Hushan River passes through the mountain, and forms an excellent natural habitat for the nurturing of fireflies, frogs and diversified life forms, making this trail the best spot for observing a wetland natural habitat. Along the path are also clear indicators and maps. This is an ideal place for both hiking and ecological observation.

Sishou Mountain Citizen Forest
The Sishou Mountain Trail was renamed Sishou Mountain Citizen Forest after having undergone renovation. The forest includes four mountains: Hushan (tiger), Baoshan (leopard), Shishan (lion) and Xiangshan (elephant), and forms a natural environment for birds, making it an excellent venue for the general public for outdoor leisure activities.

Hushan Highland 120

With the renovation work of Taipei City Government’s Department of Economic Development, Hushan River has become a garden with abundant marine organisms. The public can enjoy fireflies, tree frogs and all sorts of animals and plants amidst the trees and water.

Hushan Highland 120
Highland 120, famous for the great view and an old armory, is a highland park named after its altitude. The neat plantations and resting shelter serve as a great landmark for hikers to rest and chit-chat.

    Take a hike in the hills


    The Tiger Mountain Trail is a track through the hills above Taipei. You can get a good view of the city, including Taipei 101. You can get to the trail-head by taking the MRT Red Line to the end of the line. The Tiger Mountain Trail is not exactly mountainous; everyone of average fitness should be able to handle it. It's a good idea to take a drink and a snack.

    Tiger Mountain Trail is a trail (or series of trails) behind the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC) hear Taipei 101, Taiwan's tallest building. The trail has steps for the weekend hikers. You get a great view of Taipei from the trail. It's near Wuxing Street. You may see some wildlife, mainly birds. The trail is not extraordinarily strenuous, anyone of average fitness should be able to handle it if they take it steadily. It's a good place to get some fresh air.

    Get outside!


    Fabulous hike on the perfect day for a hike on a clear, crisp day. This is clearly built for city-dwellers with man-made stairs to get you over steep inclines. But, you still feel away from the city and get to enjoy Taiwan’s Natural beauty. If you have binoculars, bring them — some great birding in certain sections.

    Fantastic Hike, Highly Recommend


    This was a great hike. Most tourists will do the Elephant Mountain hike which is quite a short hike. If you are looking for a longer hike around 2 hours than come here. The nature is beautiful and is quite a fun trek. I would recommend checking the weather before you go. My friends and I brought umbrellas and decided to hike even though it was raining. Most people prefer sunny hikes so definitely check or be prepared with rain gear. Also bring some water to drink or snacks to eat. Staying hydrated will keep your hiking pace up. The view was great even on a rainy day. I am sure it is even better without so much fog. There are restaurants not too far from the bottom of the mountain. Work up an appetite on this hike then eat some delicious Taiwanese food! If you are a tourist looking for an off the beaten path hike or a local looking for a tougher than elephant mountain hike definitely check this out. It’s not difficult, just a longer fun hike👍

    Hiking trail in the city


    A good man-made hiking trail aka stairs with several stop points to enjoy the view of the city and 101 tower. Easy to reach, not far from MRT Station. After that you can walk to 101 tower.
