Section 7 is one of the easiest sections of the entire Hong Kong Trail.  The beginning of the trail is surrounded with trees, but further down the trail the vista is gradually less unobstructed.  Follow the Tai Tam East catchwater at the start point and you will be greeted with the delightful scenery of Tai Tam Bay and Red Hill Peninsula.  At weekends the otherwise serene Tai Tam Bay, which affords the views of Stanley Peninsula in the distance, is animated by crowds coming for water sports on its clear water.  Continuing on to the second half of the section, you will arrive in Lan Nai Wan Village, where ramshackle village houses remind you of the rustic peace and simplicity of the fishing village in days gone by.  Skirting along the hillside for the most part, the trail is an easy hike until beyond the catchwater near the finishing point, where it becomes increasingly precipitous – it first descends for dozens of metres and then leads up for some one hundred metres, which adds a bit of spice to the hike!
