- The Trail is 3.5 kilometers long and it’s a one-way trail. You will need to turn around at the end of the trail.
Climbing from the trail next to Bitou Elementary School, you can see the whole school from standing on the trail. The school is located by the coast. It is enviable that the students are able to see the sea every day.
Follow the trail, keep going and enjoy the green mountains and blue seascapes on the way; after 30 minutes, you will reach the secret place that is hidden in the valley, the “Wave Crashing Camp”, the former base of the Marine Corps. After being left unused for more than 20 years, it is now wearing colorful new camouflage clothes full of pink, green, brown and black colors; it has become a coffee shop for tourists to stay to rest and see the sea from another angle. If you are in the Camp and watch the steps on its side from upward angles, you may see the colorful view that goes up. It’s quite an interesting space view.
To roam through the whole Bitoujiao Trail, which is 3.5 kilometers long, it will take you at least 2 to 3 hours to capture all the beauty of the Bitou Cape. If you have more time, you may also stay for sunset to see the afterglow and experience the different view of the Cape.

ShueiNanDong Golden Waterfall
The “Golden Waterfall is located right beside the road at ShueiNanDong. One can see water gushing out from underground. After seeping through mining areas and contacting with sulfur, arsenic and copper ores, the redox and iron synthesis transformed the water into a golden acidic mineral water with a tint of orange. Seen from afar it looks like a gigantic wall of golden rock cliff, reputed as the “Golden Waterfall” by later generations for the spectacle.
