Hutou Mountain Park All-age-friendly Hiking Trail (虎頭山公園全齡友善步道)
Hutou Mountain Park All-age-friendly Hiking Trail is a 1km-long trail (The 600m-long first half has been completed and the second 400m-long half is expected to be open to the public in December 2016), which starts from Owl Forest School and goes along Sansheng Rd. to Tao Xin Pavilion. In addition to connecting the Core Plaza, Picnic Area, Mushroom Pavilion, Rotary Pavilion and Jingde Temple, the trail has some new attractions and the circular iron-net Caterpillar Flower Tunnel is one of them. Visitors can walk through the tunnel, appreciate the dancing shadows of the trees and feel relaxed. Don't forget to take a look at the Squirrel House and the Bird Nest Treehouse. If you are lucky enough, you may surprisingly bump into the animals or birds living in the mountains. Moreover, the Fountain of Raindrops and the Three-layered Ecological Ponds (from top to bottom: Turtle Sunbath, A Home for Frogs, and Dragonfly) invite all visitors to explore the habitats for small animals and insects.
Different from conventional concrete trails, Hutou Mountain Park All-age-friendly Hiking Trail is an elevated wooden trail that not only lessens human impact on the natural environment but also reduces soil erosion and thus spreads the seeds of environmental education! Along the forest hiking trail, you can exercise, take a forest bath and even have an ecology tour: watching butterflies flying throughout the greenery, among which are cypresses, small shellflowers, fragrant maple trees and heavenly bamboo, and exploring abundant nature and cultural dimensions of Hutou Mountain. This all-age-friendly hiking trail connects to other trails in the park and tourist attractions like Confucius Temple, Jing Guo Plum Garden and Hero Shrine are all in the neighborhood.

Alluring ViewsCome here with friends to see all the views. Long trails but enjoyable with temples and other arts and statues. When you reached the higher level you will see a dragon fountain and some statues. It also offer a view of Taoyuan City since the park is in the higher level. Very clean park. Kudos!
Normal parkGoogled kids activities in Taoyuan and this park came out as one of top ten kids' attraction on a Taiwanese website. Turns out it's an average park with slides and swings. Played soap bubbles and ate ice cream. Simple fun. Understand it's a huge park but it's too hot to venture uphill. No taxi. Had to call uber.
Don't go at night, nice viewsWe went there in the early evening, and due to it being the year end winter season previously, we couldn't see much of the park. There are very few number of overhead lights so if possible it's better to go there earlier in the day. Nice hiking trail though, you can go there for a leisure walk and enjoy the views. Pretty windy on the top of the hill.
Nice park, beautiful temples.This is an opportunity to see how locals spend their Saturday. A lot of people are doing a lot of different things - hiking, kids playing at the playground, groups of people exercise (or dance) in the park. Temples are very beautiful. A number of great viewpoints.
Worth a visitThis was a beautiful park. Full of great trails. None really too daunting. Of course a couple of trails seemed randomly roped off for construction with no clear way around.
