Like other destinations, Taiwan has a vast array of different types of hiking experiences and offers something for all skills levels and interests. While relatively small, Taiwan punches above its weight in terms of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Whether you are seeking a stroll in the woods or pushing your limits and physical fitness, Taiwan has plenty of hiking trails for everyone and is sure to keep presenting new and exciting trails year after year.
Trails in Taiwan are mostly expertly built and well maintained. There are plenty of rugged and less well maintained trails that crisscross the island, but for the most part, hikers are pleasantly surprised by the craftsmanship that goes into trail building here in Taiwan.
