Wulai District is a rural district in southern New Taipei City in northern Taiwan. It is the largest district in New Taipei as well as the most mountainous. The name of the town derives from the Atayal phrase qilux ulay meaning "hot and poisonous". Over such a great place, there are lots of hiking trails, waterfalls, old streets, free hotsprings and best of all is the Wulai Jia Jiu Liao hiking trail.

The Jiajiuliao Trail, which crosses the mountains between Sansia and Wulai in the south of Taipei County is, then, a refreshing change. The twenty kilometer-long trail is one of the longest continuous hikes that can be comfortably done in one day in the Taipei area, despite the lack of any major landmarks such as mountain summits, waterfalls, or impressive gorges en route, makes for a magnificent and not too demanding full day's walk.

Until just a few years ago, the trail (originally made by local aborigines) was quite a rough and tiring proposition, but (in line with several other scenic highlights nearby), its existence is becoming better known, and what was until recently a narrow and often very overgrown trail through the wilderness, is now a wide and easy-to-follow path through some (for Taipei) superbly remote and very beautiful countryside.
