It's difficult to explain where the Li Jia Forest Trail is. All I can tell you is that you take the road that goes through Tai Ping Village, and at the end of that road there are a few twists and turns that lead you to the Li Jia Forest Trail. 要跟你解釋利嘉林道怎麼去是一件困難的事. 我只能說要走太平村的那條路, 之後經過幾個彎道就能到達利嘉林道.
If you see the gate above you're on the right track. This is a military cemetery. 如果你路上看到台東縣軍人公墓, 你就知道自己正往對的方向前進.
There is a jet, a tank, and other military things in the park around the cemetery. It's actually quite big - much bigger than it looks from outside. 公墓的公園裡有飛機, 坦克, 還有其他的武器. 這裡面其實很大. 從外面看不出來.
Behind the cemetery the road ascends up a steep hill. You will see a lot of signs for 大巴六九 (Da Ba Liou Jiou), a restaurant just below the beginning of the trail. 公墓後面上坡的路很陡. 沿途會看到很多大巴六九餐廳的路牌. 這家餐廳位於林道起點的附近.
The view from the top is impressive. In the day you can see all the way to the ocean. At night there are the lights of Taitung City, far below. 山上的風景很美. 在白天可以遠看到海邊. 晚上可以看到台東市的燈火.
A lot of people grow betel nut trees up here. Some of the landowners keep dogs, so be warned if you're walking up. There are also plenty of snakes around here. 這附近很多人種檳榔樹. 農夫們養的狗也不少, 所以走路時要小心. 因為這裡也有蛇!
This stretch of road is not far from the beginning of the trail. 這一段路靠近林道的起點.
Almost there... 快到了...
And this is just a few feet from the trailhead. We didn't walk past the trailhead that day, because we were pressed for time. The trail is an interesting place to walk, however, and I highly recommend it. 這裡很靠近起點. 我們那一天因為趕時間沒有走到林道, 我強烈建議去走那條林道, 因為那裏很有趣.
