In response to our fellow countrymen’s desires to hike up in the mountains and venture into the wonderful scenery, starting in 2002 the Forestry and Nature Conservation Agency has been promoting a National Trail System Plan. Under the principles of conserving national land environmental resources and ecosystems, nature trails have been established in public woodlands from suburban districts to high mountains. Associated signposts and information plates have been erected. Rules of usage and a difficulty level classification system have been established, pathway guide webpages have been set up, and a series of books on nature trails and historic trails have been published. By promoting ecotourism activities, trail working holidays, environmental education programs, and public services. In order to enjoy the natural beauty, there are more than 360 million people hiking on the trails, on a yearly basis.
