Hike starts at Caonan (草湳) bus stop (line BR15) accessible from either Maokong or Zhinan temple gondola station, or directly from Taipei Zoo MRT. This is a long hike with many climbs and descents using fixed ropes or nearby trees for support, in some ways similar to Huangdi dian or Wuliao jian. The trail splits from 二格山-Ergeshan trail after about ~500 meters, turning right to 筆架山 – Bijiashan. Be prepared for 6-7 hours of hiking, although it is possible to end the hike earlier by descending to Shenkeng, saving maybe 1-2 hours. During the final descent, the trail splits in two – turning left, you will end up behind Shiding primary school (石碇國小).

There are some nice 360° views from the mountain peaks and several interesting rope sections, but nothing technically very challenging. Make sure you go on the trail when it had a chance to dry up for at least 2 days
