Get to Mutianyu is a little bit more complicated, but if you follow these directions, you shouldn't have problems arriving there. To get there, you can take the 916快 bus from Dongzhimen bus station which you can get by followig the signs in the train station (there is two 916 buses, be sure to take the express bus). After around one hour on the bus you need to stop in 怀柔北大街 (there is a screen in the bus that shows the different stops, you can figure it out looking at the letters on the screen or asking the driver). Once you are in that stop, you have to cross the street and take the H23 or H24 bus to 慕田峪环岛 (4 RMB), you can also take a taxi (50RMB) or minivan (5 RMB to 50 RMB), but the prices will depend on your bargain skills and the amount of people willing to take the taxi or minivan with you. (September 2017: touts at the Huairou bus stop said the H-buses weren't running. I assumed they were lying but waited an hour and the buses never came, so paid 10RMB for a private taxi to the Mutianyu ticket office. Additional information regarding previous comment: The buses did run in May 2017, but not frequently. We would have had to wait about 2 hours for the next one according to a Chinese app. Going back from Mutianyu we did pass H23 and H24 going towards the wall.)
You can also stay on 916 until the final stop, and then hire a minivan from there, but it will be more expensive.
