Been living in Kaoshiung for few years, finally this morning decided to head to Shoushan for a cross-country ran with Siboy. Arrived at Shoushan Trail head around 750am and started the the ran. To my surprise, the whole trail was fully paved with wooden platform. Those wooden steps did make the ran rather tough, ended up hiking up the steps instead.
Apparently from the information map, there are few others different trails in ShouShan. The trail we took started from Dragon Emperor Trail Head (Green) and we did a loop, extended to Lotus Cave, Rocky Banyan and back.
We completed the whole trail in 2.5hrs and ended our session with a cold spring dip before the trail head entrance. The Trail was rather easy but do bring sufficient water
