Jinbaoli trail(金包里大道) is from Jyuansih(涓絲) waterfall stops to Bayan(八煙), Bayan(八煙) is a places named at Jinshan(金山), the trails will pass Jyuansih(涓絲) waterfall and across Chingtiangang grassland(擎天崗) to Bayan(八煙), the early stages of Taiwanese lived in Jinshan(金山) hiked this trails to Taipei city, because from Jinshan(金山) to Taipei, there is Yangmingshan(陽明山) in the middle, if go to Taipei through north coastline, it’s too far, so they hiked this trails to Taipei. There are nature hot spring at Bayan(八煙), it’s a naturally and specially experiences.
