This is another casualty in the continuing war against authenticity that China is waging. They tear down hutong to replace them with charmless shopping malls. They built tourist traps in place of historic sights (I'm talking about you Cultural Street in Tianjin).
Here they plastered a mountain with concrete to make it unnatural.
But once you get past that, the experience is still very enjoyable. At least, you can buy drinks and food at almost every stage of the climb!
We chose the difficulty: climbing to the top and going down with the cableway. Some parts are easy, gently climbing. But near the top, there is a section comprised with very steep stairs. It took us the best part of an hour (granted, we are not in an exceptional fit).
The scenery is very enjoyable. My favorite part was the beginning, when you follow a stream until a nice fall.
Our kids who are quickly tired when we go shopping ran along the 3 hour trail, so you get the idea how happy they were.
The slight disappointment for us was when we got out of the cableway. It arrives at the south entrance and the car was parked at the east entrance. So we had to walk uphill for 15 minutes to get to the car. There is normally a bus, but none could be seen.
So not a trail in wild nature, but a nice walk in a Chinese style place.
