I visited here yesterday and I loved it! I was able to walk from my hotel (about a 30-40 minute walk) and enter through a gate at the north of the mountain, although I believe that there are plenty of buses that stop outside as well. If possible, I do recommend the walk as it took me through the more residential areas of Jinan which was a great experience.
From the mountain I was able to get amazing views of Jinan and the surrounding mountains. Be aware, there's a lot of stairs to climb and you need to be wearing good footwear as a lot of the steps are rocky and sometimes slippy. You do need some amount of physical ability to get right to the top. That being said, I don't exercise and with a few breaks I managed it.
There's plenty to do and see around the mountain. So much that in the 3 hours I was there I don't think I even saw half of it!
The mountain was a great break from the city. If you're getting sick of being surrounded by traffic and people, I'd definitely recommend it.
For anyone fancying a bit of fun there's a cable car that takes you part way up the mountain and you can get the slide way (toboggan) back down!
