Most people trek the High Junk Peak Country Trail from
Ng Fai Tin to Tai Miu Au. The beginning section
is fairly steep but you can look back to beautiful
Port Shelter as a reward. The section to Ha Yeung
Shan and Miu Tsai Tun is much gentle, with contrasting
views of scenic Clearwater Bay on the left and
modern developments of Tseung Kwan O on the right.
The once Tiu Keng Leng settlement and pier were
replaced by MTR station and highrise communities.
The section between Ng Fai Tin
and Ha Shan Tuk is also the High Junk Peak Mountain
Bike Trail open for mountain biking on weekdays.
Hikers and bikers should exercise care and patience
to avoid accidents.
The trail winds round the mid slope,
instead of the rugged uphill path, of High Junk Peak
to reduce risk. Viewed from another angle, the sharp
peak appears as rounded top!
Following the trail downhill, the
lovely scenery of Hong Kong Island, Clearwater Bay
Golf and Country Club also comes into full view,
as well as Basalt Island, the Ninepins, and Tung
Lung Chau is within sight.
