Zuochang Trail is a relaxing scenic trail around 4 km away from Errantry Lodge. It’s located in Sapo Dang Shandong foothills and is the Central Mountain Range even peak offshoot. Viewing from Errantry Lodge’s window, the overlapping peaks look like it’s ready to reach out the arms embracing the whole “Pik Yun village”.

佐昌步道,一條距離怡然居不到4公里之遙的景觀步道。其地理位置在沙婆礑山東面山麓,屬中央山脈奇萊連峰支脈。由怡然居的窗戶望出,峨然矗立兼之層巒疊嶂,彷彿隨時伸出雙手將整個「碧雲莊」溫暖的攬在懷中。


Walk on Zuochang Trail again, is because my good friend Lan Zhengfeng, a teacher from Tzu Chi Secondary School, (often do observation records of Hualien butterflies with students here, detail: http://blog.yam.com/lanjenfong) went up the mountain again. 2 days before his trip, when I know about his task, I immediately joined him. In my 2 years here in Hualien, I’ve never truly understood her beauty. This time with an expert, I certainly can have a chance to know more.

這次再走佐昌步道,是好友慈濟中學的 藍振峰老師(常常帶同學在此做花蓮蝶類的觀察記錄,詳http://blog.yam.com/lanjenfong )要再上山的緣故。前2天知道 藍 老師又要出任務嘍,趕緊向他報名。畢竟來花蓮2年了,僅外行人看熱鬧的獨自走了幾回,不曾真正瞭解過她的美,這次有內行人帶領,肯定有機會看門道滴~


The best time to go up mountain is definitely the early morning. The cool fresh air is filled with the fragrance and essences of different kinds of plants. All mountain lovers would agree that in the early morning, going up mountains, having a hiking, is a perfect thing.

親山的時點非清晨莫屬,在涼冽清新的空氣中充滿了各類植物散發出來的芬多精,故晨起時分,安步當車地走它一回,是所有愛山の朋友一致公認的最佳時點。


The trail is easy-to-walk route wiuth broad and gentle path. I have been here a couple of times before. Unlike the northern suburb which Arthur has been visiting since childhood, there are not many walkers on this trail. You will find along the trail an observation post and the pavilion with very fine views. The entire Hualien can be seen clearly from up there. Toward the north, you may see Chisingtan Beach and Hualien Airport; towards the south, you can see Huadong longitudinal valley, it is absolutely the perfect spot to study Hualien geographically.

此步道屬輕鬆健走路線,路徑寬廣平緩。上來走過幾次,不像Arthur從小爬到大的北部郊山,往來山友並不多。延途有瞭望台、涼亭,展望良好,整個花蓮市清楚的在眼前呈現,往北可以看見七星潭、花蓮機場,向南則可看見花東縱谷,是了解花蓮相關地理位置的絕佳觀測點。


Hualien is located by the coast so people can easily see the sun climbs out of the sea. The golden sunlight of the early morning is shred all over the trail as we walk through. Hiking in early morning, birds in the mountain playing all kinds of songs, Taiwan rhesus monkey jumping the leaps, Mr Lan and students constantly calculating the elegant butterflies, these are simply reveling.

尤其花蓮靠海,輕易就可見著太陽自海平面緩緩昇起。在健行的過程中,清晨的金色陽光灑在步道上,山林裡的各類鳥鳴、台灣彌猴的縱身飛越,再看著藍老師和學生們不斷的計算著翩翩彩蝶,確實令人陶醉。


With a length of 3.95km, it takes around 3 hours for a round trip on the trail with causal hiking. Since the “butterfly experts” are on a mission so they probably go as far as 1K in 3hours. Therefore Theresa and I who are basically seeking a causal hiking have to leave them.

步道全長3.95km,安步當車緩緩而行,大約3小時可以來回。不過我們還是脫隊了,因為『蝴蝶專家』是有任務在身的,他們1K可能就走了3小時,所以我和Theresa這種以健行為目的的外行人,終究還是只能看看熱鬧…
