A little to much pavement for me but great trail.

I've done this trail numerous times, including with my 88-year-old father. The trail is never strenuous. but it gives a very different picture of Hong Kong than you get on other trails and other islands. There is an amazing tiny Thai satay stand near Yung Shue Wan, where you can also sit down for other Thai dishes. It's the best replica of the atmosphere in Thailand for such places that I've found outside of Thailand and the food is great. At the south end, if you want to keep going, there is a trail that loops around the eastern of the two peaks, to some lovely beaches on the south side of the island; there is also a trail that goes up and over the eastern peak if you want to get a great view over the Lamma Channel and the South China Sea.

Welcome to Hong Kong- great atmosphere in the city as well as out. If you're coming from the monastery be prepared for a climb. It's worth it but there's some big elevation to climb in a short period so take breaks if you need. I saw only one person coming the way we came, Everyone else was coming from the other direction. The trail head is a ways back behind the monastery, you'll pass old an housing quarters/boarding home and what looks like an old restaurant. The initial climb is the hardest , mostly boulder size steps until you get to a clearing at the top with some large rocks to climb on for decent views. Some advice: it was mostly out in the open so if its hot, be prepared. The second stint is another short scramble to the top where you'll find a small shelter and 12-20 folks with selfie sticks. There are also large rocks to climb out on to get a better view. We hiked through to the other end and caught a bus back to HK.

Started the trail near Tung Chung. The first mile is very steep with tall stone stairs that go straight up the mountain side without and flat portions. Even though shaded, doing this in the middle of a summer day forced me to take many breaks. After the first mile the slope mellows out a bit and the air cools off as you gain elevation. Once on top, the views make the climb all worth it. Once on the other side, there is a bus stop and ferry to get back to Hong Kong, very convenient. Beautiful trail!

Finding the trail was a little tricky but after the trailhead, signage is descent. The first 2 miles is all uphill and quite the climb. But the view is definitely worth it! The rest of the trail has mild slopes and well kept pavement. I went on a Wednesday morning and only saw a handful of people. Instead of going back the way I came, there is a bus stop at the end of the trail to get you back towards Hong Kong.

Nice trail! Not only hiking on the mountain, but also going to a wonderful beach!

Paved trail and roadside walking. We walked down from the tram station. you go through some very lush forested areas. The trail was very slick in spots. Not too many view locstions.
