Mizhan Old Road is next to Mizhan Elementary School, at 42 km along County Road 193. It was one of the first roads connecting Shuilien and Shoufeng Township (crossing the Coastal Mountain Range) in early days. Villagers used to carry the rice on their backs to Mizhan village, which developed a substantial transportation trade. This is one of the most significant cultural features of this trail.
The oldest 7 Km stretch of the trail has been abandoned since the construction of the highway. Recently, the Mizhan Community Development Council started to use bamboo to rebuild sections of the trail and try to keep the originality of it. The newly rebuilt trail is 415 meters above sea level, and 1700 meters long. While the trail is not long, it is quite challenging. If you want to finish the entire trail, be prepared to sweat an awful lot.
