The whole way is gentle and empty, and it is especially comfortable to walk. The whole distance is about 750 meters, and you can see the pavilions after a 15-minute walk.

Jeffy vaguely remembers that he had visited Qingshui Cliff with his family when he was a child. At that time, he only felt that the mountains were so high and the seas were so blue. He hadn't experienced this place deeply yet. But this time after we went on our own, we had almost a new understanding of this attraction. In addition to the visual shock, we couldn't help but have a deep respect for nature. People say that different scenic spots will have different feelings at different times of life. Maybe that’s what it means. After the opening of the Suhua Reformation, traveling to the east is no longer a long journey. The Huide Trail is very easy to walk, suitable for all ages. Why don't you come to Hualien next time?
