This is the most touristed and crowded place to see the wall. Go a little further and find a place to get away from the crowds.

I've done the hike at Mutianyu Great Wall and this does not compare. There is a steep climb up to the first tower. For the unfit, this is the knockout blow. The views open up and it starts to look more like what you expect...More

There are no actual signs on the wall, at least I could not find it. The map is there in between and close to Badaling Wall entry point.
