The views on the way to the mini Canyon (pictured above) are alright. The Canyon itself looks great in pictures, but it is quite underwhelming in real life.
How to Get There:
The people we met on this hike were super friendly. The guy who we asked to help us take photos (right) ended up taking more pictures WITH us than OF us.
Hiking Directions (start of trail):
After crossing the tracks (image 1), you will see "Leung King Plaza". Do not enter the plaza, instead, turn right to go around it.
You will see a park-like area. Walk through it, keep going towards the right. You will see some estate-like buildings in front of you (image 2).
Keep walking until you get to the road (Image 3). Turn left and keep walking along the road until you see a hill going up (image 4).
Turn right and walk up the hill. This is the start of the hike.
You will walk past a "No Trespassing" sign (image 6), but you can ignore it and continue walking up the hill.
If at any point you are unsure of the way to the start of the trail, you can approach locals and ask for "A Po Lo San", which is Pineapple Hill in Cantonese. From our experience, most people knew where it was, and were more than happy to guide us.
Hiking Directions (end of trail):
You will know that you reached the end of the trail when you pass a barbed-wire fence (image 7). After that, turn right.
The walk on this straight road is quite long, it took us about 45 minutes. You will also walk past a beach, which unfortunately is not very scenic.
Turn left when you see a sign pole (image 8), then keep walking straight.
You will see a minibus stop for route number 33 on your right (image 9). Take that bus back to Yuen Long MTR Station.
There are also several local food shops near the minibus stop, so you can grab a bite if you're hungry after the hike!
