Brush-rest Mountain is named for its peculiar yet distinctive shape – a series of sharp points that look a lot like the type of brush rest commonly used by Chinese watercolour painters. We visited on September 5th for a walk up and down valleys, over Great Wall, and through a whole lot of leaves and bushes. The sky was cloudy and misty, which made the temperature cooler.

Statistics: 4 hours hiking (5.75 hours start to finish) over 13km (average moving speed 3.2km/hr); start height 801m, highest point 1235m (second section of Great Wall tower crossed), lowest point 688m (valley in the middle), total climbing 688m. Estimated 2079kCal burned.
