A little to much pavement for me but great 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.

Did it today despite the bad weather. The trails are most of the time well built out/paved and can be as well run. There is only moderate elevation and only the first 1-2 km are a bit steeper. Very much enjoyed the trail and will do it again or a variation of it.
