Pat Sin Leng, an important mountain range in North East New Territories, is a popular destination for hikers because of its history and scenery. Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail overlaps Section 10 of the Wilson Trail and further ahead is the finishing point at Bride’s Pool Road. Starting with series of uphill stone steps, the trail is physically demanding, but with patches of shade and occasional gentle breezes, it is still a pleasant hike. The trail also overlooks the world’s first reservoir in the ocean, Plover Cove Reservoir, which was originally a bay to the north of Tolo Harbour and a pearl-hunting site in the Tang Dynasty. The Spring Breeze Pavilion is another spot and was built in commemoration of the two teachers who died saving the students in the Pat Sin Leng Wildfire. The pavilion commands a panoramic view of Tolo Harbour and even Ma On Shan.
