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.
SAT, JULY 28, 2018: TAI PO KAU
This nature reserve is one of the few genuine areas of rainforest left in Hong Kong. It is very shaded and easy, so should be a good introduction to HK's flora and fauna.


Meeting Point: 9.30am at Taipo MTR outside coffee shop. We`ll get a taxi to the Reserve


Note: This hike is on a Saturday
SAT, AUG 4, 2018: CASTLE PEAK EVENING CLIMB
We will start walking up from Leung King on a concrete road up about 300 meters and continue on a natural trail for another 200 meters up toward Castle Peak to watch the sunset (around 7:00pm), a spectacular 360 degree vista of northwest Hong Kong gradually fall into red around us. The route is not very difficult but it is quite steep uphill all the way to the top and the weather will be hot. Also prepare for a few eroded or gravelly grounds during the climb. After stopping for a while to look at the scenery, we will take steps down to Tuen Mun and civilization. So bring a torch and enough water (uphill in the beginning is mostly exposed!). Note: Don`t be late! We will be racing against the clock to get to the top before sunset!


Meeting Point: 4:00 pm at Leung King Light Rail Station next to Circle K, Tuen Mun


Note: This hike is on a Saturday
SAT, AUG 11, 2018: SHARP ISLAND EXPLORATION
We will take a short ferry ride to Sharp Island near Kiu Tau to walk through shallow waters from the beach to the island where we will see pineapple bun shaped rocks. We may also try to visit the other beach on the island if we can hail a boat to get there. Bring swimming gear, shoes for walking in water, drinking water and a pack lunch.


Meeting Point: 9:15am at the Sai Kung Public Ferry Pier


Note: This hike is on a Saturday
SUN, AUG 19, 2018: COLD WATER STREAM TREK, STREAM CHANNEL WADING, POOLS AND SANDWICH ROCK
The Cold Water Stream (Tai Leung Shui) in the Castle Peak basin is rich with "sandy beach" pools drained by unpolluted water. The sand comes from disintegrated rocks after heavy erosion resulted from military activities. We shall trek between its middle & upper course to see an interesting rock-split like slices of a loaf of bread. Need to wade water in part of a stream channel covered under dense bush and to walk on gravelly slopes. Bring a pair of gloves and wear a pair of amphibian shoes and be prepared to dip into the water. Starts from Leung Tin Pass and plenty of pools swimming.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at Leung King Light Rail station in front of Leung King Shopping Mall, Tuen Mun.
SAT, AUG 25, 2018: DRAGONS BACK NIGHT HIKE
We will do The Dragons Back in the cool of the evening as the sun goes down. This gradually undulating, rather scenic amble will provide us with enough exercise to work up an appetite for a bite to eat either at Big Wave Bay or Shek-O. We`ll decide on the day what we feel like doing.


Meeting Point: 5pm at Shau Kei Wan MTR station exit for the bus terminus


Note: This hike is on a Saturday

SUN, SEPT 30, 2018: JUNK TRIP
We'll go aboard a junk in the morning and make a tour around the beautiful islands in the north-eastern part of Hong Kong. Remember to bring your swimming suit as we will definitely stop somewhere to swim. We may also take the opportunity to explore some of the islands after swimming. So, please bring along with you a pair of sandals good enough for walking along the shore.

Food and drinks are NOT provided, so please bring whatever you need to survive the whole day. I'll divide the junk hire charge among the number of people who ACTUALLY show up. The charge each of us needs to pay ranges from HK$200 to HK$300. So, feel free to bring your friends along, but you need to book your places in advance.

To book your place, or for more information, please email Amanda.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at University MTR station (It's the one immediately before 'Tai Po Market' Station on the East Rail Line. Please DO NOT mix it up with 'HKU' Station, which is on the Hong Kong Island line.
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,
