Difficulty Rating: 4/10
Duration: 2.5-3.5 hours
(The hike is about an hour longer if you decide to go towards Big Wave Bay)
Cell Service: 5/5
How to Get There:
I dragged my fam out hiking with me on a Sunday morning, but they ended up loving it!
After getting off the bus, the trail head is right in front (image 1).
Keep following the signs for "Hong Kong Trail" and "Dragon's Back".
After about 2 hours, you will approach a crossroads. Turn right towards Tai Tam Gap, Shek O Road. If you go the other way, you will end up back where the bus dropped you off (To Tei Wan).
Then, you will approach another crossroads giving you the option to end the hike at Tai Tam Gap (bus stop) or go on to Big Wave Bay, which is 1 hour longer.
You can then take bus number 9 from either Tai Tam Gap or Big Wave Bay to get back to Shau Kei Wan station.
