Before the completion of the Baiji Tunnel, the way from Daxi to Mt. Jiaoban, Baling and other Fuxing mountain areas was mostly through the Baiji Foot Trail (originally named as Shikuiken Historic Trail). It was an important transportation trail from the Qing dynasty to the Japanese colonial period. Since the availability of the light railway in the Baiji Tunnel in 1944, Baiji Tree-Shade Foot Trail no longer played the role of a transportation hub. In 1949, Cihu became a military restricted area, and thus veiled the Baiji Foot Trail with a sense of mystery. The concealment of the Baiji Foot Trail has been up to half a century long, and its natural ecology hence escapes developments and destructions.
 
Visiting the Baiji Foot Trail is not only for the immersion of historical culture, but also for experiencing the incomparable natural beauty. From spring to fall, visitors can see the black-winged firefly, Luciola cerata E. Olivier, and the firefly Pyrocoelia prartexta Olivier, and also enjoy the tranquility of the forest at night with spots of fireflies. When winter comes, there are chances to meet the Mountain Scops Owls, the bamboo patridges, the Taiwan blue magpies, and the Grey-chinned Minivets, making it a tour filled with unlimited surprises. Visitors can find a great variety of plants along the trail and the most well-known is tung flowers. Every May, tung blossoms fall on the meandering trail like beautiful white snow and create a romantic ambience. In addition, cuckoo, Formosa palm, tuberous sword fern, common free ferm, swamp manogany and other tree species are strewn randomly across the forest. Swallowtails butterflies, bush brown butterflies, dark palm dart butterflies, and stripped blue crow butterflies fly through the forestry here and there.
 
The 2.8 km Baiji Tree-Shade Foot Trail is a wide asphalt pavement for pedestrians only. It is not as steep as other historic trails, and therefore a suitable one for beginners of all ages and for families and kids. Along the way, just enjoy and bath in the raw forestry, be awakened physically and mentally by phythoncide and anion, and experience an ultimate relaxation. On the mountain top, visitors can have a panoramic view of Daxi and enjoy the boundless vision, which proves worthwhile. The Baiji Tree-Shade Foot Trail also leads to Dajiuqiong Historic Trail, Xizhou Park and other tourist attractions.

    自然生態豐富 林蔭夾道 迂迴轉折 友善設計

    Traveler rating:5 2018-03

    多年前家聚曾由步道南口小走了一段,此行「後慈湖」導覽由有著單軌窄軌的舊百吉隧道口,經架高木階梯步道跨越馬路後的「百吉步道」北口作為起始點,步道迂迴轉折,林蔭夾道,豔陽天時也能享有舒涼森林浴,此行其中一段繁花盛開,苔痕路石也別具特色。 南、北口初段寬敞處可容停數輛車,北口前馬路主幹道路邊三個內凹讓車道、南口端出隧道後迴轉處也能停上幾輛車。步道北口端舊百吉隧道出口、步道中段的「後慈湖」南管制門位置處,則有洗手間,是不可多得、有著友善設計、豐富自然生態的步道。

    全程都是泊油路的散步步道

    Traveler rating:3 2017-02

    百吉林蔭步道可以從百吉隧道南北二口兩個路口,左進右出或右進左出,最後穿過百吉隧道繞一圈回來,非常輕鬆,全程都是泊油路,很適合闔家老少同行,推娃娃車也可以。中間有叉路可以穿過百吉隧道上方接往總督府步道跟大九芎步道到頭寮山。
