This hikes takes you from Discovery Bay to Mui Wo. The hike itself is fairly easy but does provide some good high views over the harbor toward Cheng Chau and Peng Chau as well as the mountainous terrain of Lantau Island, including Lantau and Sunset Peak (the highest and second highest peaks in Hong Kong). After the hike you can enjoy a nice lunch and cold beer at the China Bear near the ferry on the water in Mui Wo.

This is a favourite hike for my family.
It is fairly easy only a few steep parts. Harder to do when the weather is extremely hot and humid. Lots of stairs on the decent to MW. My knees begin to hurt half way down. But overall a lovely hike!

We do this hike quite often. Not sure what's about the category - this should be noted as moderate, in my view. Especially the first 2km from DB to Tiger Head is quite steep and challenging.
Most of the photos linked to this hike are actually from the shorter trail via the Monastery... (only 6km).
