Hike was great, beautiful scenery. The hike back down did get a little steep but other than that it was amazing.

This is our favorite hike in CNY. Absolutely LOVED it. It kept getting better as we walked deeper. The stairs at the beginning were pretty steep but once you got past them the rest was smooth sailing. LOVE!!!

Beautiful, my 5 year old did it. I would suggest starting early because it gets really busy.
