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, FEB 26, 2017: TWO BUFFALOES
We`ll take a mini bus or bus from Choi Hung and alight at Marina Cove Shopping Centre close to Ho Chung Village. From there we`ll find a trail to take us to the Mac 4. From the Mac 4 we`ll join the Buffaloes. West Buffalo Hill - (604 M) and Buffalo Hill (606 M). Both offer fantastic scenery. We'll descend back to Nui Po Au and go back to town through Mui Tsz Lam where there are buses to Sha Tin Town Centre, Diamond Hill and other destinations. Note that some of the descents are steep and quite gravelly, so you are advised to bring a stick and gloves if you prefer to use them as well as shoes suitable for this kind of terrain. Depending on the weather the paths may also be slippery, so be prepared. This can be a difficult hike and it`s also quite long.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at Choi Hung MTR station, Exit A, in front of the Circle K.
SUN, MAR 5, 2017: HOI HA TO MOUNT HALLOWES AND MT SHEK UN
We start hiking from Hoi Ha and head to Mount Hallowes and then descend to trail from ferry pier of Sham Chung to Hoi Ha. However, we do not stay on this trail for too long or as far as the ferry pier since we take on the trail to Shek Uk Shan. The options from Shek Uk will be time dependent. In the past, we have ended up on the trail which takes us back to the Hoi Ha Road (and not so far from the Hoi Ha/Wong Shek Pier road intersection). We have not come across many hikers on these trails and views from the peninsula are well worth it. Note, some parts may be bushy. Note, also I have not done this hike in a while, so it may be a bit exploratory, but hoping memory serves me well. Another note: As you know transport back from Sai Kung can be busy at prime times, so it may be better if you are willing to take time to have a drink/snack/evening meal in Sai Kung with convivial company before heading home.

Level of Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous (some climbs)

Bring: Sunscreen, plenty of water & food as there is no place to buy any (unless we are lucky with the place near Shek Uk but no guarantees)


Meeting Point: 9:30am, Sai Kung by Hoi Ha mini bus stand - Green mini bus 7 (Depending on queues, and times of mini bus, may decide to share a taxi to Hoi Ha)
SUN, MAR 12, 2017: LIN MA HANG, MACINTOSH CITADEL TO SHA TAU KOK BORDERLINE
We shall take a mini-bus to the #12 Ta Kwu Ling Police Outpost and enter the secret hill path to stay away from the restricted border road to Lin Ma Hang Village, which has many interesting historical structures. We shall then pay an in-depth visit to the the caves system of Lin Ma Hang mine, a so-called Macintosh citadel, and descend to San Kwai Tin, an unused cultivated area. The exploration will continue from San Kwai Tin to Pak Kung Au, along the HK/China fence border, and eventually end up at Sha Tau Kok. Be prepared to encounter bushy areas and strange stream beds. Please bring a pair of gloves, your ID card, a flashlight and food.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am outside Maxim Restaurant, Sheung Shui MTR.
SUN, MAR 19, 2017: KOWLOON PEAK AND SURROUNDING HILLS
We shall immediately ascend Hammer Hill and enter another seemingly never-ending steep hill path up to the top of Kowloon Peak standing at 682 M. Continuing northwards, we shall top Middle Hill (585M) and along the ridge to top Tung Shan (544M) We shall hit Gilwell Camp site and continue with the Mac Trails turning westward. Finally we shall descend with a rarely-used hill path down to Kowloon. Be prepared to encounter bushy areas, many up and down steep paths. Please bring a pair of gloves, enough water and food.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at exit C2 street level, Choi Hung MTR
SUN, MAR 26, 2017: EAGLE’S NEST, BEACON HILL, LION ROCK AND SPICY FOOD
We'll walk from the station up a few connecting paths to reach the Eagle's Nest nature trail, and later meeting the MacElhose Trail Stage 5. The trail is well maintained but there will be a few ups and downs as we pass by Beacon Hill and eventually Lion Rock. Later we'll descend by the main trail to Shatin Pass and take the road all the way down to Wong Tai Sin MTR station. Second lunch will be at the Sichuan place just a few blocks away.


Meeting Point: 9:30am at Lai Chi Kok MTR station, Exit B

SUN, APR 16, 2015: PAK TAM CHUNG TO SHA KIU (EASTER HIKE)
Our traditional easter hike returns. We`ll take bus 94 and alight at Pak Tam Chung. After walking briefly on the Mac 1 we`ll divert to the Sheung Yiu Country Trail, home to the Sheung Yiu Folk Museum. After returning briefly again to the Mac 1 we`ll once again divert to follow a coastal path to the fishing village of Sha Kiu. From there we`ll head back to Sai Kung on a speed boat. Some of us will have food/drinks in Sai Kung and you are welcome to join us. Another option will be to eat in Sha Kiu before we head back. We can decide on the day.

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 on. 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.

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.
