I will go of the names on the sign that tell me it is technically two things; Irrigation Ecology Pathway and Chuyin Riverbank Ecology Park. Either way, these two are so close together that they make one good combined bike ride.  They are in Ji-an and are an alternative to part of the Chuyin Bicycle Path.
