Lion Head Mountain Hiking Trail
The“Lion Head Mountain Park”is situated on a 70-meter altitude Jinshan cape. Transformed from an early military coast guard restricted zone to the tourist destination today, the old barracks, bunker, fort and natural habitat was preserved. It is a forest walk with a good view and ocean on three sides. The Lion Head Mountain ringed walkway is cool with a gentle rise and trees to either side. It is fit for family outings, passing the adorable lucky trail (Maitreya figure) and walking further in for the beautiful “Couple Rock” story and see the “Candle Stick Rocks” shaped like candle holders. One can also visit the mystery bay of the north coast and appreciate Tofu Rock and sand rock remains on the marine beach. The best part about visiting Lion Head Mountain is the chance to see all three “Golden Coast Wonders” at once, the Candle Stick Rock, sulfuric fire fishing and moonlight on water.
Longdong Bay Cape Trail
Longdong Bay Cape Trail connects the North and the East Capes with a history of 35 million years for the terrain here. When walking on the trail, one will be surrounded by lush green mountains on one side and azure ocean and sky on the other side. It is hard not to be astonished by such magnificent scenery and thus it is no wonder why it is one of the recommended trails in New Taipei City. The road is gentle along the way, and is suitable for people of all age groups to hike here and admire the magnificent ocean views with the cliffs. The scenery when looking down from the observation platform is astonishing. One can also see many people snorkeling or fishing at Longdong (Dragon Cave), hence, it is a worthy place to visit when coming to the Northeast Coast.
