The Guguan Seven Heroes WuWoWei Mountain 屋我尾山 hike can be done in 2 directions. Most people now do it descending from the 31.2 Km marker on the Du Xue Shan Road down to the peak and returning the same route ascending back to the road.
The hike is very short and the Forest Bureau prefers hikers to do the hike from the top down and the original route is quite steep the trail dangerous. The hike starts at 1915 meters.
Getting to the WuWoWei Mountain North Trail head
Other 7 Hero hikes start from near Route 8 on the way to Guguan, but WuWoWei starts off the Da Xue Shan Park Forest Park road at the 31.2 marker. There is a small parking lot and signage for the hike. There is a south trail head which is the original route of the hike.
Mt. WuWoWei #3 of 7 Heroes:
Height: 1796 Meters
Distance: 2.5 km (1 way)
Time Round-trip: 2-3 hours
Altitude Gain: 120 meters
The Guguan Seven Heroes WuWoWei Mountain hike is not anything special. I recommend it if you are on your way to the Da Xue Shan forest park or the nearby Eagle’s Beak (Yuan Zui) hike.
The hike meanders down through dense forest. There are some markers to follow the trail and even a short detour to run up another peak off the trail.
Before you know it, you have arrived at the underwhelming peak with no view. Our group was finishing up our 7 Heroes hike with Mt. WuWoWei and it was a bit of a let down. If you have a day and want to knock off one of the Guguan 7 Heroes, I recommend Mt. DongMao or Mt. BoJinJia if you don’t have a whole day. If you get an early start, Mt. Malun or Mt. Baxian are well worth it.
