Try not to go on the weekends if you can. Bus ride by take a while to get there. Hike is about 2.5 hours long. Very green scenes and vistas have 360 views. Glad we made the trek.

I love this hike. It has some nice scenery on both sides. If you want a bit of a longer hike start at the south end of the hike and head north, you can then walk down into big wave bay as well.

It was quite easy to get to this trail. I just followed the instruction on the Hongkong website for tourist. It was also an easy trail and the view is beautiful.

I believe its best to check the weather forecast nearing to your hiking date. Typhoon is not a norm, hence u shouldn't be too worried about that. But well, if it rains, definitely not advisable.
