Xinliao Waterfall

Xinliao Waterfall (中文版: 新寮瀑布) is a great, swimmable waterfall in Yilan, Dongshan Township (宜蘭縣冬山鄉). The start of the trail is at the Dongshan Forest Police Station. There are bathrooms, vendors, and ample parking. It's free, but you have to register on your way in. The path is well made, and only an 850 meter hike to a large viewing platform in front of the waterfall.

Simply walk off the trail into the river to get up to the bottom of the waterfall for pictures and swimming. The water is deep enough to swim in, but not always deep enough for jumping.
