Attractions along Beikeng Creek Historic Trail
Zheng Police Post, in Tai'an Township of Miaoli County, is located at the 2 km point on the west side of Mount Zheng, facing Mount Zheng across the Beikeng Valley. It is about 1,930 meters above sea level, and was built in 1924.
The origin of the name, Zheng, may be related to the forest of Asian Hazle that grow in the area. The traditional Atayal name for the place is Ginapan-papak. Papak means the ear, and Ginapan-papak means the shaved ear.
During the Japanese occupation, the guards stationed at Zheng Police Post and his family members set up charcoal kilns to burn charcoal to keep warm in cold winters. The remains of the charcoal kilns are still visible today.
