A short but sweet tour: Biking the Houfong trail (China Post)

Houfong Bicycle Path is the shortest of Taichung County's bike-only tourist trails. Just 4.5 kilometers long, it doesn't take more than an hour and a half to cycle from one end to another and back again.

If you have time on your hands, you can go further afield, up into the hills behind the small town of Houli, or along the nearby Dongfong Bicycle Path.

Most people begin their exploration of the Houfong Bicycle Path at its southwestern end, close to the interchange between Taiwan Highway No. 3 - an old road that runs almost the whole length of the island - and Freeway No. 4...

I rode this trail on the same hot summer day I explored the Dongfong Bicycle Path. The complete article is here. The photo here shows the Dajia Creek, which both bike trails cross.
