The Gubeikou to Jinshanling hike is a nice long walk that covers the more mellow line of Great Wall at Gubeikou and ends up at Jinshanling, where the wall runs up and down steep ridgelines.

On a clear day the views are awesome, as the wall can be seen running along ridgelines into the far distance.
