Zhiben Forest Road Waterfall

Zhiben Forest Road Waterfall (中文版: 本林道瀑布) is a nice roadside waterfall for cooling off at whenever you're in Taitung. And a great place to shower off when you're on a camping trip. Since it isn't far out of the way, I stop by here every time I'm on an around-the-island road trip. The water isn't very deep, but it's deep enough to swim. You can park right in front of it, there is no need to hike at all. If you do like hiking though, there is a 2nd tier which I have never been to (no idea how to get to it) and if you keep going on the road it will turn into a hiking path and with many more accessible waterfalls. If you follow it all the way, it will take you to Ghost Lake, though that's a several day hike.
