Overview

A fantastic mixture of tough climbs and interesting downhills, so make sure you have some good brake pads and plenty of water. It is hard to find mountain bike trails in Taiwan, but this is a good one.

Need to Know

For the group ride Sunday morning contact this bike shop: facebook.com/cowboybikes/

Cowboy speaks very good english and may loan or rent you a bike.

Description

This trail sees quite a bit of use on the weekends, but you should find the local Cowboy's bike shop in Tainan and ask about the group ride on Sunday.

Park at the temple and head up the small paved road. This climb is a good example of many more to come. At the top of the hill, turn right onto the dirt road which heads into the forest with scattered pineapple fields on your right and left. There will be tall grass in some places which will almost completely hide the trail if it hasn't been cut back lately. Just ride through it.

The singletrack will soon start because of jungle encroachment on the farm field access roads or they will be purpose built. In some places you'll climb a 15% grade for 1/8th of a mile only to ride back down it a few feet over and then climb back up. Pretty sure even the best will do a little hike-a-bike.

Eventually, you'll ride by an interstate off-ramp area which is a great place to stop for some cold water or iced coffee. Head under the interstate on a slippery downhill section and cross into another park. There are lots of small paved roads here with plenty of climbing before you cross over the interstate again. A few more crossings and you'll come to a swinging bridge. Now this is a fun obstacle and a first in my book. A few more miles and you are back at the Temple.

History & Background

The start point and parking area are found at an amazing temple.
