Note: The scenic area at the start of the hike hasn't required the QR code scan and a green result on previous visits, but you should be prepared to show it and bring your passport/ID card just in case.

Please note additional precautions and terms and conditions for hiking during the COVID-19 situation.

We'll offer an option to do an easier version of the hike if you don't want to do the full Level 4.

For this walk we will visit Stone Gate Mountain Camp, a private camping area in the mountains just north of Huairou City.

It’s named Stone Gate Mountain for a large rock arch up on a cliff face.

The first part of the hike takes us up paved trails and stairs to the Stone Gate, where a lookout platform has been built. It’s fairly steep on the way up.

From the arch we continue through the hills to a small temple, by a valley road.

The easier version goes down that valley road and back out to the start point, crossing a few spots where the road was washed out by summer floods.

The longer version continues up the valley road to take a look at the waterfalls: one called the Big Sister, the other the Little Sister.

Farther up the road ends, and we get on to rough hill paths and trails to cross over at a pass and then down into another valley. A trail down that valley will bring us back to the start point.

Because of the COVID-19 situation we have some extra terms and conditions for participation.

In particular:

  • DO NOT participate if you are sick or showing symptoms of fever and/or have an elevated temperature, or have been in close contact with someone who was.
  • DO NOT participate if you have not completed any required quarantine after your return to Beijing.
  • You MUST agree to the mitigation and prevention measures outlined here and that Beijing Hikers will not be held responsible if any participants become sick.
