邻近 Sandaogou, Hebei (China)
it's very convenient to go from beijing to taizi town, chongli, olympic ski resort. the express train takes only 45 minutes from qinghe station, shared commons with subway line 13. and the free shuttle from taizi rail station to the starting hiking point, no matter to genting or taiwoo, only takes around 10-15 minutes. so it's even shorter than from beijing downtown to the suburbs.
and obviously, the hills are very flat, which you can have a broader view while hiking, and you won't miss it.
while everywhere is in construction now. there's almost no flat road or trail. most of them are bumpy, muddy, even with many tree wells and pipe ditches.
and there are not many hikers here so you couldn't find clear trails most of the time. so if you very much like challenges, you may come over here to conquer them, esp. the 300-meter-elevated birch forest.
it's a nice place to hike, while it's not in the list of worth-coming-in-life because it is not that unique.
