Centered around Qixing Mountain, Taiwan’s highest dormant volcano, Yangmingshan National Park, features 13 hot springs and several scenic trails easily accessible from central Taipei by frequent buses. Smoking fumaroles, Taiwan blue magpies, and rhododendrons growing from andesite rocks stand out as the national park's trademark sights. Enjoy a stroll around Dream Lake and visit Grass Mountain Chateau, Chan Kai-shek’s summer residence. You can see a staggering 1,360 species of plants as you wander around the park's rolling grass hills, which were created after the government burnt forests to prevent thieves from stealing rich sulfur deposits. Covering 114.5 sq km (44.2 sq mi), the area serves as a popular weekend and holiday outing spot.

Nice scenic mountain. Easy access via mass transport. I enjoy strolls along the several family friendly walking trails available at the bus depot.
Unless you are gamed for hiking otherwise don't waste your energy and time. When you are there take a shuttle bus (not mentioned in Google) to go around the mountain. Every time you board the bus it's NT15. There are about 9 stops around the mountain.
