The Guanmen Historic Trail, which spans across Jiji Town in Nantou County and Ruisui Township in Hualien County, began construction in 1886 and completed the following year.
The trail is about 105 km in length, starts from Jiji in the west and reaches Fuyuan in the east. It was the last road excavated for regulating indigenous people during the Qing period. However, it was infrequently used by the officials. During the Japanese occupation, this trail was used by the Government-General in Taiwan to forcibly relocate the Kashe and Danshe groups of the Bunun tribe to another village. Today, since the 921 Jiji earthquake occurred in 1999, many parts of the Guanmen Historic Trail have collapsed causing dangerous road conditions, and making it difficult to pass.
