Kap Lung Ancient Trail Country Trail
With its name originating from Kap Lung Village, Kap Lung Ancient Trail is one of those the old trails with a long history. Kap Lung Village, which is only home to 2 households currently, has a span of history of more than 2 centuries. Bridging Kap Lung and Tsuen Kam Au, Kap Lung Ancient Trail was once a major commuting route that allowed farmers who lived around Pat Heung and Shek Kong to travel to and from Tsuen Wan Market. Every single step of the well-preserved path was built of granite. Seasonal characteristics of the path are further enhanced by the presence of, Chinese New Year Flower, Giant Alocasia, Camel’s Foot Tree, Tree Cotton, and Ivory Coral Tree. In summer, the path is exceptionally lush, cool, and cozy, giving city-dwellers a rarely pleasant experience. The second half of the country trail is more physically demanding as it is made of well-retained stone staircases, while the beginning of the country trail overlaps Kap Lung Forest Trail. Given that the whole path is located in the woods, however, hikers can sit in the shade of trees and take a rest on sunny days. All in all, Kap Lung Village is quite an easy walk.
