This trail goes upwards from the Liouliao Industrial Road along the Liouliao River, roughly parallel to Lion’s Head Mountain Historic Trail, which may be connected to Chating Trail and Lion’s Head Mountain Historic Trail.

One may see torrents, Hakka villages, old trail remmants as well as an abandoned coal mine along the way; the entire length is approximately 5,500m, if calculated from the mountain entrance at the end of Lion’s Head Mountain, which is about a three hour walk, hence physical strength as well as time must be taken into consideration beforehand.

A pick-up vehicle must be arranged in advance as one does not end up in the departure location. The Seven-Star Trees located in the mountains of Liouliao feature an approximately 400 years old mother camphor tree, with the subsidiary camphor trees approximately 100 years old; it is named after the 7 branches derived from the same root, and is also the location for local Hakka people to praise Tu Di Gong, which serves as proof of the prosperous camphor woods and the camphor logging of this area during the old days.

Furthermore, this place is also the tourist attraction for Tung blossoms as well as fireflies; where one may witness the fallen Tung blossoms spreading over the ground during early summer of every year.
