Maple Lake

 

Maple Lake Corner

Maple Lake is located to the west of the Tatun Mountain, which can be entered at 200 meters before the Dasi Bridge on county highway No. 101. Earlier there were six huge Formosan Sweet Gums near the entrance and it is surrounded by the mountains on three sides.

Since the shape looked like a lake, it was thus named as Maple Lake.

Although Formosan Sweet Gums are not maple

trees, the adjacent hills see varieties of maple trees, particularly the Green maples.

Later Green maple trees have been constantly planted, which makes the name of Maple Lake match the reality even better.
