Are you still craving for another adventure after conquering Yangchuo Forest Trail? Wujiutongshan Footpath nearby invites you to get to know Luzhu from a brand new perspective! Wujiutongshan Footpath is 4 kilometers long and consists of 5 trials. The height difference is 80 meters which will make you sweat and challenge your limits!
The name of Wujiutongshan Footpath dates back to the Ming Dynasty. Mr. Tsai and his five alcoholic sons moved to this place. Each of them drank a bucket at a time. Thus, the place was named Wujiutongshan (five wine buckets mountain). Another saying goes that villagers in the past would take their cows to drink water here. Thus, the name Niusuitongshan (cow water bucket mountain) came along and was phonetically turned into Wujiutongshan nowadays. 
On holidays, Nantien Gong on Changxing Road is always packed with pious believers and hikers. The hiking gate to Nankanshan Footpath at Nantien Gong Parking Lot was funded and built by passionate hikers. The 170-step stone staircase named “Yingguang Love Stairs” is mild and safe. Following the concrete path passes Chunchiu Pavilion, the 155-meter high Nankanshan is a great spot to overlook the Taiwan Strait and the international airport. There is another trail named Liufu Footpath that also leads to Wujiutongshan which is slightly covert and bumpy.
Passing by Wangyiu Pavilion, sculptures of five wine jars are frequently seen along the way.The Wujiutongshan Resting Pavilion where you can overlook the Guanyin Statue is also where other trails meet. Continue straight and you will arrive at the Fude Ancient Road. Turn left and you will connect to Haishan Road and Huanshan Footpath. Luntou Fude Temple is located at the intersection of the two paths. The intriguing scene of a temple within a temple attracts many visitors. The highest point of the trail is the peak of Shanbishan where Chinese silver grass flourishes in fall and turns the mountain into curious white.

    Lovely walk near taoyuan airport

    NOTE: Access road is about 300m north of the point given on the tripadvisor map along Zhangxing Rd. The perfect outing if you want to stretch your legs between flights. Less than half hour by taxi from airport, even closer if you are staying in taoyuan. Main track is about 1km paved, with viewing platform on summit at 155m above sea level. All through forest and above the smog. Birds, butterflies, plants and views.Return same way, or find road through golf course on the other side. Lots of little side tracks, a temple and other interesting things along the way. Descriptions only in Chinese. 5 min from Tai Mall where we spent the other half of our layover.

    五酒桶山是蘆竹人假日可以來健行的一座山,不難爬且路線又多,不會很枯燥乏味,大部分都會從長興路這一側爬上去,往林口山路旁邊也有得上去,但不好停車就是了

    五酒桶山的入口有南天宮的停車場和一間廁所,接下來往上走有一小段台階,全程來回大概要一個半小時,中間幾乎全是平坦步道,走起來比較輕鬆,缺點是中間無廁所

    五酒桶山爬起來很輕鬆且樹蔭很多不會很熱,無聊想散步或是運動這邊是個不錯的地方,不過還是要有點小心,畢竟山上嘛難免有蟲或是蛇,不過我去那邊是很少看到蛇拉,防蚊藥要多帶就是了,哈哈

    很輕鬆的步道

    以南天宮為起點,附近蠻好停車的,假日登山客不少,如果只走到五酒桶山和崙頭土地宮,應該算是非常輕鬆的一個步道。想稍微挑戰一下可以在崙頭土地公處走海山之路,可以稍稍感受到爬山的感覺。
