A good escape from the city exists at Ba-Shian-Shan before you enter the Gu-Guan hotspring hotel service area.
Some good hikes exist here including an 8 hour hike, a few 2 hour and 1 hour hikes. The scenery is good, typical steep mountain side scenery for taiwan. Some interesting areas we noticed included a bamboo forest area and a short trail we walked. I have not yet done the 8 hour hike but it probably will happen in the next 3 months.
To go there:
Leave Taichung using Wen-Shin. Go past the traffic circle in Da-Keng and take the second exit. drive to a small town called Tian-Leng. Stay right on the traffic circle (first exit). Look for the bridge to HWY 8 which will be a left turn (it is marked). Follow HWY 8 to Gu-Guan. you will reach a T-intersection- to go to Ba-Shian Shan go right.
Address: 5 mins outside of Gu-Guan hotsprings
