    Saijia Community Trail

The Saijia Village Trail sits behind Saijia Elementary School. Spanning across 2.1 kilometers, it leads all the way to the Pingtung Saichia paragliding hang-gliding field. Sauntering on the trail, you are likely to hear birdsongs of all kinds, ranging from crested serpent eagles to crested goshawks. If you are lucky, you might also get a chance to hear the low and nasal sound made by maroon oriole, a protected bird species. Owls will also join the bird choir at night.

Another kind of natural choir can also be heard at night in the butterfly eco-park, built by staff from the Saijia Elementary School and features plants and nectar sources for butterflies, at the trail entrance. Frogs of all kinds perform bucolic symphonies at night, contributing to the natural music feats with their unique croaks: Microhyla fissipes make sounds like winding a mainspring; Taiwan treefrogs croak like a turkey; Japanese stream treefrogs chirp like insects; Kuatun frogs make sounds similar to humans peeing, and Asian grass frogs sound like they are asking you for money in Chinese.

Visitors are recommended to spend one hour here. They can enjoy the eco-trail while appreciating the natural landscapes along the way.

    Overgrown with weeds, the edges of some road sections have collapsed, and the road condition is poor. Most of the trails are shaded, but the roads can become slippery after rain. There is a viewing platform at the end, but unfortunately the weather was not good that day

    At the end, you can walk to the viewing platform of Saijia Flying Field. If you go faster, you can finish the walk in more than an hour.

    I heard that Saijia Elementary School is a very architecturally distinctive elementary school. When I came to the neighborhood, I walked around by the way. However, the school is not open on Sunday. After parking the car in the parking lot next to the school, I found this trail. There are some cement block pavements in the first half of the trail, and the second half is an asphalt road. It may not have been repaired for a long time, the road surface is getting worse and there are collapsed places, although some sansevieria are planted. Plants such as lantana, but more weeds such as Xianfeng grass and purple flower thistle, have invaded the periphery of the road. It is also good to take a walk in a place where there are no people and breathe fresh air.

    The weather is just right this season, there are not many people around, and there is a slight uphill climb along the way.
