The EASTERN RIDGE
(includes the Little Hawaii Trail and Stage 3 of the Wilson Trail)

One could argue that the Wilson Trail is the most interesting of our 4 long distance trails. Where the MacLehose Trail generally skirts any
signs of civilization, the Wilson Trail combines spectacular landscapes with a glimpse of Hong Kong village life.

The Eastern Ridge is, probably, the "forgotten" section of the Wilson Trail. It is nevertheless a very pretty and interesting hike. From the new
dormitory towns of Tseung Kwan O we follow a gently climbing stone path through woodlands and the occasional orchard along the Po Lam
Stream to connect with the Wilson Trail proper.

Generally, the "gently climbing theme" continues as we follow the Wilson to conquer the dirt trails over Black Hill and Chiu Keng Shan while
enjoying spectacular views over Joss Bay and Victoria Harbour.

An optional detour will take you up to the old defence installations atop The Devil's Peak, before we conclude the walk at the picturesque
quarry and fishing village of Lei Yue Mun. We might be right at the edge of the big city, but it's a very different life in the narrow alleys of
Lei
Yue Mun.

Those staying on Hong Kong island might be interested in finishing the outing by taking a small ferry across the harbour from Lei Yue Mun to
Sai Wan Ho rather than the MTR....
