“The Perfect Walk”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

18 Peaks is a hidden away oasis of accessible hiking minutes away from the busy GuangFu Road Section 2.
Bring a good pair of shoes - or not! The path is paved, curvaceous, and circumnavigates a little mountain offering glimpse viewpoints along the way. There are many paths that branch out of a main circular path that takes roughly forty minutes to walk around. The inclines are both steep and gradual and leave you fulfilling that brisk walk portion of you exercise routine. Some people will jog the route, and there are no bicycles. You can take advantage of many of the exercise equipment installed around the route (chin up bars, sit up benches, etc.)
On weekends there tends to be a lot more people and occasional vendors will disperse around the path selling fresh vegetables (mostly), teas, coffee, and other Taiwanese treats.
Take a rest at one of the gazebos along the way. They offer shade, of which there is plenty of along the path, often a viewpoint, and a relatively private atmosphere.
Like temples? 18 Peaks has at least one major one, with a good group of community oriented citizens that relax and socialize there.
Going solo, with friends, or with family, enjoying the trail can be done any way.
If you are in Hsinchu and you want to walk and immerse yourself with the citizens of Hsinchu, then 18 Peaks is your place to do so.
