Must take a bus to trailhead, no parking available.

Need to Know

No parking at trailhead. This is a steep trail with stairs most of the way that are VERY slippery when wet.

Description

Begin the run at the MTR (Hong Kong subway) Tung Chung Station; it's the terminus of the orange line.

Take subway exit A and proceed north to the bus station near Tung Chung community garden. Board bus 23 or 11, cost 17.5 HKD~2€.

Ride the bus for about 7 minutes, 3.9 miles.to Pak Kung Au bus stop. NOTE you must tell the bus driver to stop or they will blow right by without slowing down. Sit near the front of the bus to be sure.

Get off the bus and proceed east up the stairs and then follow the trail to the peak.

There is a shelter at the peak to escape the elements.
