LANSHAN FOREST PARK
On the south side of the city, directly over the train station, behind
兰山森林公园 (Lánshān Sēnlín Gōngyuán)
The easiest way is probably by chairlift, but you can walk up the hillside, cycle up, or get a taxi
Tickets are available near the entrance to Five Springs Hill , or at the chairlift itself. You have two options. Either walk up to the chairlift through some narrow alleys along the western boundary of the park, or you can walk through the park and get to the chairlift via the western gate.
Buses to Wuquan Shan: #2, 18, 117
I'm not really sure where people set off. If you want to do some walking, it might just be easier to use the chair lift to get up, and then follow the various paths down.

This takes about an hour, on good roads. The route actually begins quite a way west of the hilltop. 500m south of Xīguān Shízì (西关什字), where Zhōngshān Lù (中山路) meets Báiyín Lù (白银路), there is a road that crosses the railway tracks, and then starts to climb up to . Look out for the signpost. It would be useful to have a map with you, but basically head upwards and eastwards. Locals will point the way. Once you're higher up (having passed through a couple of small hillside residential areas, the route becomes obvious. Near the summit, the road forks, giving you a choice of continuing on the north side or south side of the mountain.
