Welcome to Roz's Hiking Pages.

We are a friendly hiking group based in Hong Kong who do regular free weekly hikes, all over Hong Kong. Our hikes range from easy to difficult, so please take a moment of your time to read the information on this website before joining a hike. Any questions, let us know and we hope to see you soon.
SUN, NOV 26, 2017: LIN FA SHAN (NEAR LANTAU STAGE 2)
From Tung Chung we'll follow a narrow trail climbing easterly and steeply up to Pok To Yan. We'll follow the dramatic ridgetops over to Lin Fa Shan, one of the highest peaks in Hong Kong. Then we'll descend the many steps (easier than gravel) of the Lantau Trail and take the back route through the woods all the way to Mui Wo. This is one of my favorite hikes.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am Exit A Tung Chung MTR station
SUN, DEC 3, 2017: SHEK PIK TO LANTAU PEAK ON THE DOG'S TOOTH
After our bus ride to Shek Pik, we'll start walking on the Shek Pik Country Trail until we find the rough trail climbing steeply up onto the ridges to Kau Nga Ling and eventually Lantau Peak.

This hike is steep in parts and care should be taken on the ascent, especially if it`s windy. For the descent, we can stay on the Lantau Trail over the open ridges on the east side of Lantau Peak or go down via the Po Lin Monastery. Let`s see what we feel like on the day.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at the Central Ferry Piers for the 9:40 ferry to Mui Wo
SUN, DEC 10, 2017: BLUFF HEAD ADVENTURE
We will take the 9:30am bus to Wong Shek Pier. From there, we shall hire speed boats sailing across the Tolo Channel to Bluff Head, the extreme NE tip of the Hong Kong landmass & a place of special geological interest, including the Devils Fist. The volcanic rock overlying the Lower Jurassic sedimentary rocks outcrop from Bluff Head to Pak Sha Chau along Tolo Channel makes up the entire southern arm of the Plover Cove Reservoir.

After landing, not on a pier but by jumping on boulders on the coast, we shall climb to the top of a cliff among bush to reach a faint path on top of the headland & walk westward. This is a journey of no return, as the speed boat will say good-bye & there is no escape route all the way. Our "Long March" will pass Tai Ling, Ngong Chong Shan, Pak Kok Shan, Feng Wong Wat Teng ridge, Luk Wu Tung, Shek Nga Ta, Hong Shek Mun Au, Mount Newland, Mui Tin, to Wu Kau Tang. The interlocking slopes, mostly have no mobile phone signals coverage, are rugged, at times steep and exposed.

Bring enough food, drinks, a pair of gloves and a working torch for emergency. As it's necessary to confirm the number of hikers with the boatman, people interested in joining MUST SIGN UP by emailing Amanda.


Meeting Point: 9:10 am at Sai Kung bus stop. No waiting after 9:25 am.
SUN, DEC 17, 2017: CHRISTMAS HIKE & PICNIC LUNCH
Difficulty Level: Moderate but fairly long

Things to Bring: Something to share for the Xmas lunch out on the peninsula (towards Tai Long Tsui, Sai Kung) & head torch just in case (if you have one), but plan not to be on hike once dark, plenty of water & Christmas cheer.

We will catch the bus/taxi to end of Mac 2 and walk towards Tai Long Wan beach along Mac 2 (the first part maybe a bit boring for those who have been on it many times, but I promise you it gets better) until we come to the beach, and then we head out onto the peninsula. The last time I did this walk which was ages ago, we had sunny blue skies and it was brilliant having a picnic lunch out at the head. It really is lovely out on the peninsula. Hope for the same again. Then it's back to Maclehose and then it's up to us. Last time, we came back past Sai Wan beach. It made it quite a long walk and we did finish in the dark, but as it is along well paved path, no worries & finished at pavilion and caught a cab back to Sai Kung, or alternatively go back the way we came in. All depends how much time and walking you want to do. We finished up with a very nice meal in Sai Kung - it ended up being a full day out.


Meeting Point: 9 am at fountain area by main bus terminal in Sai Kung


Please let me know if you can make it and what food items you may be bringing. Thank you.
SUN, DEC 24, 2017: WONG NAI CHUNG GAP RD TO STANLEY VIA VIOLET HILL & THE TWINS
Anyone with no Christmas Eve plans may want to join us for this short walk to Stanley via Violet Hill & The Twins. This hike always gets the blood pumping even in the cool weather, mainly due to the 1000 step ascent to The Twins. Note that the trail is a little rugged in places. We can grab a bite to eat in Stanley before heading back or go back to Central directly. We`ll decide on the day what we feel like doing.


Meeting Point: 9:30am Central Exchange Bus Terminus at the Bus No.6 stop (to Stanley)

Before joining any of our hikes, please take a moment of your time to read the following section, especially if you are new to hiking:

Hiking, Health & Safety

Hiking times are estimates only and should not be relied upon. A short hike may end up being longer, a long hike may be shorter. It is not recommended you join a hike with us if you have other commitments the same day as we cannot 100% guarantee the finish time.

Our hikes are generally never cancelled if it rains. Depending on the trail, we may change the route on the day. If a T8 (Typhoon Signal 8) or higher is raised the hike will be cancelled. Please check this website and / or our facebook page for announcements on the day if you aren`t sure.

Finally, if you are coming along, please take a moment of your time to add the hike leaders number to your phone in case you need to contact the leader on the day.

Thank you,
Roz's Hiking Group
