Located between the main peak of Mt. Datun and Mt. Erzi, the approximately 2-kilometer long Erziping Trail was built along a volcano-tectonic depression in Yangmingshan and ranked as the country’s top 10 scenic trails, rivaling those in the Alishan and Taroko Gorge. Thanks to its evenly paved surface and pleasant weather, this wide, barrier-free footpath is the most accessible one in Yangmingshan National Park. In addition to three ponds, scenic highlights and the balmy weather thanks to its location in the lee side of Mt. Datun, the Erziping Trail Recreation Area spans the subtropical and warm temperate zones, making it virtually Nature’s classroom with impressively diverse vegetation ranging from forest trees (mostly Red Nanmu, Japanese Black Pine and Chinese Sweet Gum), arborescent plants, shrubs and ferns of all kinds, to food plants for butterflies, nectar-yielding plants and aquatic plants. It is perfect for a casual stroll and also for such activities as butterfly- and bird-watching, mountaineering, hiking, sightseeing, day-tripping and flora observation.

    a good starting point for mount miantian


    The path from the line 108 busstop to Erziping takes less then 30 min in a gentle stroll. Both the path and the destination are not very spectacular. But if you feel like hiking you can proceed to Mt. Miantian. Which is a true beauty. Fascinating with its dense jungle on one flank and the grass on the wind side. And you get some great views as well. The round trip from the bus stop via erziping took me about 3.5 hrs. Without breaks but also without any hurry

    Best Barrier-free Trail in Taiwan


    Yangmingshan National Park (陽明山國家公園) is the third national park in Taiwan. It was established on September 1985. There are total of nine national parks in Taiwan. The 11,338 hectares (28,017 acres) Yangmingshan National Park covers Shilin (士林) and Beitou (北投) districts of Taipei City and the Tamsui (淡水), Sanzhi (三芝), Shimen (石門), Jinshan (金山) and Wanli (萬里) districts of New Taipei City. Erziping (二子坪) is located at the west side of Yangmingshan National Park and is about 27 km (16.8 mi) from Taipei Railroad Station. It located in the saddle between Mt. Datun's (大屯山) and Mt. Erzi (二子山). It is one of the most popular destinations in the park. We live close to the national park and it takes us less than an hour to reach this amazing natural resource. We visited Erziping at least 6 times during the last 10 years. There is a small information center and a barrier-free toilet right in the entrance. Starting from here is the one of a kind 1.8 km (1.21 mi) Erziping Trail which lead you to the Erziping Recreation Area. I have never seen a mountain trail classified as a barrier-free trail before, but it is a real barrier-free trail where you can use both strollers and wheelchairs. We saw elders, passengers with limited mobility, and babies join us on the trail to the recreation area. There also an elevated wooden path that allows us to get closer to the woods to discover the wildlife in the area. Waking on the trail is quite comfortable even in the hot summer day because we actually walk under the shadows of trees. At the end of the trail is the Erziping Recreation Area (二子坪遊憩區). It is a open grassland with ponds and some pavilions. People may play, have picnics on the green, bask in the sun, or enjoy the scenery. It is the best place to see a variety of butterflies, dragonflies, birds and insects. It is also a popular location to observe the beautiful Taiwanese Blue Magpie (藍鵲). You can take city bus 260 from Taipei Main Station (railroad station) to Yangmingshan and take the shuttle bus 108 to Erziping. There are no shops or vending machines beyond the entrance. Be sure to wear a comfortable shoes and bring water with you especially in the summer even though it is an easy hike. The parking lot used to be free, but it became a toll parking lot the last time we visited. The parking space is limited so be sure to visit earlier in the day.

    가는 길이 좋았고 어렵지 않아서 근처에 계신 분들이라면 한 번쯤 방문해도 좋은 장소인 것 같습니다. 저도 일정에는 없었지만 방문하니 좋았어요.

    二子坪位於陽明山國家公園西側,為大屯主峰與二子山之間的火山凹地。道路平坦、地勢寬廣開闊,中間有三個水池。由於地處大屯山的西側背風面,常有雲霧籠罩,景色秀麗; 全長約1.8公里,平均坡度2-8度,走完全程約需80分鐘(往返)。 本步道為無障礙步道,環境教育資源豐富,適合全家大小同遊

    由停車場開始步行,1.8km 的步道平坦寬廣且涼爽,停車場和二子坪公園都有洗手間,很適合帶著家中長輩或小孩踏青的路線。並且有機會看到美麗的國鳥~台灣藍鵲。
