Quarry Bay/North Point to Stanley, Hong Kong
Stanley, Hong Kong
Half-day, fairly strenuous hike from near Quarry Bay MTR to Stanley. For some reason the GPS shows me doing it in less time than it actually took. My time was about 4.5 hours at a moderate to brisk pace, with a few short breaks. It's up-and-down 6 seperate peaks (Siu Ma Shan, Mt. Butler, Jardine's Lookout, Violet Hill, and the Twins). Lot's of stair climbing. Nothing technical. Mix of pavement and...

A good hike from Chai Wan to Tai Tam Tuk reservoir. This hike is essentially stages 7 & 8 of the Hong Kong trail, but in reverse. Highlights include walking the Dragon's Back which has some amazing views of the Shek-O and Big Wave Bay areas. The last part is very flat as you follow a catch water to the reservoir. However, it does provide some great views of the harbor and I did encounter quite a...
