Along Central Cross-Island Highway, after passing Jiuqudong (Tunnel of Nine Turns), you will arrive at Cimu Bridge(Motherly Devotion Bridge), which is an H-Shape hanging bridge with marble stone lions on each end and with marble lotus stones on two sides. The rock beneath the bridge looks like a frog. The frog-like rock is composed of black layer of schist at the top and white marble at the bottom. A pavilion was built on this frog rock, becoming the crown on the frog. This was built by late President Chiang Jing-guo, in memory of his mother, during construction of the road. Cimu pavilion area is on the east side of the bridge, built by late President Chiang Kai-shek, in memory of his mother, Mrs. Wang.

This area where Laoxi River flowing from the marble valley into Liwu River is called the "Heliu" which stands for "merging flows." The cliff has two different rocks layers. Going west after the turn, on the river terrace is the Heliu camping area. It has space for eleven tents (equipped with restrooms and cold showers). There is NT$ 300 charge per tent space and a first-come, first-served method operates. (There is no charge for Lushui campground 500 meters westward of Heliu campground equipped with washstand, outdoor tables and chairs, but no cold showers available.) Remember that the parking space is limited and that during summer vacation, holidays and weekend this will always be a very popular site for family outdoors activities.
