The Hengchun Beinan Historic Trail crosses Hengchun Township in Pingtung County and Taitung City in Taitung County. It is about 98 km in length. The trail starts from Hengchun in the south and reaches Beinan in the north while passing through Manzhou Township. This trail and the Jinshuiying Historic Trail have always been an important transportation route between the east and the west of Taiwan during the Japanese occupation.
There are not many historical records about the Hengchun Beinan Historic Trail. Although there were only a few records kept during the Qing era. By the middle of the Japanese occupation, the trail had been widened and made into a designated road for car traffic.
Today, the Hengchun Beinan Historic Trail is well preserved. The paths in sight are just like the road that was built during the Japanese occupation. Currently the section that is blocked is in the Guanyinbi area.
