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.
