One of the most popular runs in Taipei is along the series of paths on the Keelung River, most of them through parks. There are dedicated paths on both the south side (left bank) and the north side (right bank), with several bridges that can be crossed by pedestrians to form loops of varying lengths. There are good river views, several parks, and access from hotels and Taipei 101 where lots of visitors stay, especially the south side. Good restroom facilities along the way. Note: on path access from the south, you’ll need to use stairs that climb over the flood wall every km or so — see the dotted lines on the map.
- 9.1 km (5.6 miles) one-way -- south side

- South side, west end: Dajia Park or any point along the way
