On my next visit in Aug 2015 I discovered that the trail has now been incorporated into part of the
Qing Xin Ling complex and there is an entry fee - the above photo is the back lake at Qing Xin Ling.
The first part through a small gorge is lined with displays of old shops and artifacts
From here concrete steps lead on up the hill but there is no further developments. You come to the second level as indicated by the red writing
The flora is interesting. There are lots of monophyllaea
After climbing up and up you reach this point with a view
Unfortunately the heavens opened and we were unable to go on up to the triangulation point, instead we made a hasty but careful descent as the trail was really slippery.
Old cables left by the miners
We sheltered below one of the old huts used by the miners and watched the rain
