Hiking and Soaking
沐山泡泉
從登山健行,再以泡湯作為束,是入谷關的登山儀式。先理解山,再準備相關的配備,才能夠安心也安全。
Enjoying hot springs after a mountain hike is an emerging tradition at Guguan.
For a safe and enjoyable hike, understand the trail you are attempting and prepare adequately.
四季皆宜的捎來步道 The Shaolai Trail accessible year-round​
捎來步道位於入關博物館(谷關遊客中心)北面的獨立丘陵,兩者有大甲溪相隔並以捎來吊橋和谷關吊橋相連。「捎來」名稱來自當地泰雅部落頭目名字之發音,沿途是親民好走的木梯、石階,步道沿著山勢而建,落差大、陡坡多,行走時要注意呼吸的調節與步伐頻率,讓身體慢慢的習慣適應階梯的高低。
一路上能看見高聳的台灣五葉松、二葉松和常綠喬木提供涼爽的遮蔽,可透過樹梢觀望遠山,或在制高點欣賞大甲溪谷與谷關溫泉地區的風光。春天有櫻花,秋天有楓紅,還有在身旁來來去去的蝴蝶或是鳥兒,任何時刻都適合前來。
結束健行後可以到谷關溫泉公園的泡腳池,感受讓溫泉魚親近雙腳的新鮮體驗;入關博物館(谷關遊客中心)有旅遊資訊也有當地豐富的生態資訊,可在上山前預習,下山後複習,建立對谷關地區更完整的認識。
The Shaolai Trail is located on a large hill north of the Guguan Museum (Guguan Visitor Center). The trail is separated from the Visitor Center by the Dajia River, which is spanned by the Shaolai Suspension Bridge and the Guguan Suspension Bridge. The name “Shaolai” is a transliteration of the name of a local Atayal tribe leader. The trail features wooden ladders and stone steps along its length, making it a hike suitable for most everyone. As it follows the natural terrain of the hill, the trail features sections of relatively steep ascents and descents. When hiking, it is important to pay attention to your breathing and find a good walking rhythm, this will help your body to slowly adapt to the height of the stairs.  

Bracketing the trail at various points are towering Taiwan White Pines, Taiwan Red Pines and other evergreens that offer cover and shade. Vegetation is thick, but through the foliage you can occasionally spot mountains rising in the distance, or come upon vistas of the Dajia Valley and Guguan hot spring area below. In spring, the Shaolai trail is festooned with cherry blossoms; in fall it’s ablaze in red maple leaves. Along your hike, you might also be accompanied the region’s many butterflies and birds. The trail has something to offer throughout the year.

Finishing your hike, the Guguan Hot Spring Park awaits. Here visitors soak their feet in hot spring pools swimming with small fish. The nearby Guguan Museum (Guguan Visitor Center) has tourist information, as well as abundant literature on the area’s wildlife and ecosystems. This information can be a valuable resource, offering hikers a greater understanding of the amazing sights and sounds waiting for them on the Shaolai Trail.
