Situated around Quarry Bay and Tai Koo Shing, Hong Pak Country Trail not only brings you green vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges and scenes of birds chirping and flowers blooming, but also interesting looking rocks scattering along the path.  Through careful observation and imagination, “Dinosaur Rock” could be spotted.  The trail also offers a full view of the cityscape of Quarry Bay and its neighbouring areas, giving hikers magnificent feelings of being surrounded by the oasis of the city.  Don’t be surprised if you hear owls calling along the trail at dusk.  Since the finishing point of Hong Pak Country trail is connected with Quarry Bay Tree Walk, after finishing Hong Pak Country Trail, you can carry on with the Tree Walk and get a grasp of different species of trees, such as Oblong-leaved Litsea, Hong Kong Gordonia, and Yellow Cow Wood.  What is more, you can follow Mount Parker Road and drop by Woodside Biodiversity Education Centre, also known as ‘Red House’, where you can get to learn the natural environment and the biodiversity of the territory at its exhibition gallery.  Together with the classic design of the building, the place cannot be more tempting for visitors.
