Buses (¥17, 80 minutes, 6.30am to 5.20pm) run from Yùshān bus station to the start of both the eastern section (东部) and southern section (南部) – make sure you specify your destination, as no buses link the two sections and they are at least 20km apart. The last buses back to Yùshān leave just after 4.30pm.
A cable car leaves from both sections. The eastern-section cable-car ride is more spectacular, but leaves you further from the West Coast Trail; if you’re walking, the southern section is a much shorter hike. Note, you can use your return ticket on either cable car.
