Upcoming Hikes

Sun, Sept 25, 2016: Shek Pik to Shui Hau, Lantau Island
Led by: Angela Tel/Whatsapp:  5919 9377
Meet: 9:30 am at the Mui Wo ferry pier for the 9:40 ferry to Lantau
Time:  2 hours + ferry travel, beach time and lunch time (all day!)
Description: This is a short walk with a few ups and downs and quite a bit of shade, plus a beach. From Mui Wo we'll take the bus to Shek Pik and then walk on the Lantau Trail Stage 9 which rounds Shek Mun Shan, dipping down to the beach at Lo Kei Wan and finishing at Shui Hau. If the day is right, we can continue to Tong Fuk and then walk along the beach all the way to Cheung Sha Wan.

Sun, Oct 2, 2016: Kennedy Town to The Peak via High West
Led by: David Tel/Whatsapp:  5329 4284
Meet: 9:30am Kennedy Town MTR Exit A
Time:  3/4hrs
Description: We`ll walk from Kennedy Town up to the Pok Fu Lam Rd to find a walking trail that eventually joins the Hong Kong Trail. Most of these trails are in the shade. If the weather isn`t too hot we`ll divert over High West (494m) to Victoria Peak. Note the trail up to High West is slightly brushy, but is short and nothing too bad. High West offers panoramic views over the western and southern sides of the island. There are a few options once we are at The Peak, but most probably we`ll come down a different trail back to Kennedy Town which offers many transport options. Let`s decide on the day. Before that we`ll explore the gardens around the peak and enjoy an ice cream. On a clear day The Peak offers spectacular views of Hong Kong.

Sun, Oct 9, 2016: Pak Shek Kiu Exploration
Led by: Angela Tel/Whatsapp:  5919 9377
Meet: 9:30 am Exit A at Tsuen Wan MTR
Time:  5 hours
Description: After a short taxi ride to the Yuen Tsuen Ancient Trail near Allway Gardens, we'll start a steady climb. We'll take a few turns (maybe even some wrong ones) meandering upwards and northwards. We'll probably turn right at Ha Fa Shan, then left towards Sheung Fa Shan, and right towards Pak Shek Kiu. After crossing the Maclehose Trail Stage 9, the last stretch will be on the Kap Lung Forest Trail down towards some special milky treats at 'Farm Milk Co.' I expect the walking will take about 5 hours.
