***Tamshui-Kavalan Trail Series*** Pingxi/Shikong Historic Trails - 坪溪古道 & 石空古道

On February 11th, join Parkbus Taiwan for an amazing day out hiking about 10km from New Taipei City to Yilan County and the beaches of Wai'ao!
This is going to be awesome!

There is no public transportation available to the Pingxi Historic Trailhead in New Taipei City, so this is a perfect Parkbus trip.
This trip offers participants the opportunity to hike 10km from New Taipei City to Yilan along two historic hiking trails in Taiwan. These are easy, non-technical trails that offer glimpses over the picturesque east coast of Taiwan. There are a few streams to cross, but they aren’t too deep. Bring a bathing suit and a small towel to dry up if you want to cool off in the river. The route we will be taking (see map below) will end in Wai’ao, where guests can take a dip in the Pacific Ocean or grab a bite to eat and a drink at one of the local eateries in town.

在這個行程中,我們將帶著您沿著兩條歷史悠久的步道行走10公里,從新北市徒步到宜蘭縣。在這條難度不高的步道中大家將可以欣賞風景如畫的台灣東海岸,也會穿越幾條十分淺的溪流,如果您想在涼爽的水中放鬆身心並擦乾身體,請帶上一條小毛巾和一件泳衣。
