On October 23, the route release ceremony of the state-level mountaineering trail of Siming Mountain in Yuyao County and the golden autumn climbing activity were held at the entrance of Yang'e Ancient Road in Liangnong Town, Yuyao County. Over 200 outdoor sports lovers from Yuyao County, Cixi County and other places participated in the activity. At the opening ceremony, the route of the hiking trail at the Siming Mountain was officially released, marking the official start of the construction project of this mountaineering trail.

Reportedly, the total length of mountain climbing trails in the Siming Mountain area of Yuyao County is 800 km, which cover eight towns (or sub-districts), and form the overall layout of "three vertical and two horizontal lines", "eight rings" and 16 high-quality routes. The new thousand-li mountaineering trail will link up the Siming Mountain scenic area, the mountain villages, the agricultural viewing spots, home-stay inns, and farm-stay restaurants in Yuyao County, equipped with the tourist stations, sign systems and safety warning reminder systems. With the digital mountaineering system, the picturesque trail will integrate some ancient roads to build the best section of the Tang Poetry Road of eastern Zhejiang Province.

This year, Liangnong Town and Luting Township have been designated as typical demonstration towns (or townships), and have started the construction project in advance. They will fully complete the construction of their sections of the mountaineering trail by 2023. Then, the thousand-li mountaineering trail with diverse ecological environment, distinctive cultural characteristics, convenient intelligent navigation and extensive industrial drive will become a way to boost the rural revitalization of Siming Mountain and help Yuyao County become a rich road in the construction of common prosperity demonstration area in Zhejiang Province, making the brand of "sports Siming Mountain" famous in the Yangtze River Delta area. At present, the Yang’e Ancient Road, the Jiaohu Lake Ancient Road, the Donggang Mountain forest road, the ancient tracing trail and the Dalan Cherry Blossom trail have been completed and passed the relevant national standards.

The golden autumn climbing activity is divided into the experience group and the professional group. The experience group will pass the Yang'e Ancient Road and reach the viewing platform of Yang’e Ridge, with a one-way journey of 2.5km. The professional group will pass the Yang’e Ancient Road,  the viewing platform of Yang'e Ridge, the Xiajialing Village, the source of the Yaojiang River, the Daping Ancient Road and the Donggangshan Village, and finally reach the Jinling Top, about 13 kilometers one-way
