Yuleishan (玉垒山) is a well known park located in Sichuan. This park boasts of scenic views, historic sites, and well marked paths. This park is frequented by both locals and tourists as people enjoy visiting Erwang Temple (二王庙). (You have to walk through the park to get to the temple.) Erwang Temple was made to show respect to Li Bing (the person who developed the Dujiangyan irrigation system). If you want to check out Dujiangyan (都江堰), AllTrails has a trail specific for the dam!
