A popular course for it's suspension bridge!
This is a course that traces the north slope of Mt. Takao.
This course is full of temperate forest trees, followed by beech and fir forests.
This trail is popular because there is a suspension bridge (Miyama-bashi Bridge), and it is a course with many climbers.
This path crosses Iroha no Mori Trail and if you mistakenly take this path you will go down to Hikagezawa (Ura-Takao) and cannot go to the cable car station.

Entrance to Trail 4. Next to the restroom below the summit.
Go down the stairs for a while and follow a narrow road.
Intersection with Iroha no Mori Trail. Don’t make any mistakes, head toward “via suspension bridge (Miyama-bashi Bridge)”
There is a bench where you can take a break near the intersection. This is the only resting spot on Trail 4.
During high traffic seasons, Trail 4 is also crowded.
On Trail 4, there are many deciduous trees.
Here is the suspension bridge!
Although suspended in the air, this bridge is quite sturdy. When crowded, wait in turn to take a commemorative photo.
If you pass through the suspension bridge, it will soon lead into Trail 1.
There is an entrance to Route 2 on the left near the final point. Go straight to Route 1. (Next to Jyoshin-mon gate)
