After recent changes, there currently is only one train station that serves the town of Huashan from Xi'an. From Xi'an, only the frequent (16 x day) high speed trains will bring you to the Huashan National Park. They leave from Xi'an North station and arrive at Huashan North station (30-45 minutes, ¥55/¥90/¥175 [Oct 2017] for 2nd/1st/Business class ticket). As of October 2017 the regular trains do not serve Huashan anymore. To see if this information is still up to date, check any of the online ticket sites like Trip.com.

For the train you will need to purchase tickets from the ticket counter and provide a passport for identification. A photo of the passport was not accepted and the automated ticket machines require a Chinese national ID card. You will also need your passport to get into the park anyway, so bring it with you. It is recommended that you purchase tickets online or at one of the ticket offices in town as if you attempt to buy tickets at the station you will face long queues and many of the trains sell out well before the departure time meaning you have to wait even longer. You may be faster getting the bus if you have not pre-booked tickets.

From Huashan North station, you have two options to get to the mountain. If you want to take a cable car to the top of the mountain, take the free green minibus (Number 1, every 20 minutes) from the car park in front of the train station (the bus stop is on the far right side of the train station as you walk out) to its last stop. You'll see the East Gate visitor center as you approach the last stop. Just head from the bus stop to the opposite side of the huge roundabout to get back to it. The Number 2 shuttle bus will also get you there, but it takes twice as long so there's no point. If you want to hike to the top of the mountain, take a taxi (~¥25) to Yuquan Yuan (Jade Spring Temple) where there's another ticket office for walkers.
