Hiking on the trails of the National Parks is the most direct way to learn about and experience the natural environment and cultural resources of National Parks. The trails are not only a facility that connects the various sites within a National Park, but are also the main medium for connecting individuals to their surroundings.

Information on the difficulty level of the hiking trail routes that require admission application has been updated on the“Hike Smart Taiwan Service” website. The public is reminded to make preparations according to the different difficulty grades of the trails before entering the mountains, in order to enhance the safety of activities in alpine areas.
