Come out for a fun and adventurous hike that will have you exploring areas that you thought you already knew! We will first drop down Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road and then hike on HK Trail Section 1 back toward Pok Fu Lum. We will then do a bit of bush-bashing and explore a very little known trail to summit High West. There we will have unobstructed views of the south side of the island. If it's perfectly clear, you may even see Macau. Total distance is ~7km. The first 5km are mostly flat except for a 300m climb near the end. All skill levels welcome.
We will depart sharp at 9 a.m. from in front of Häägan Daaz at the Peak Galleria. There is a 7-11 there that you can buy drinks for the hike.
- Minimum 1.5 liter of water.
- Tennis Shoes at a minimum. Trail shoes or hiking boots are better, but are not necessary. Street shoes will not suffice.
- Sport/Hiking clothing as it will be hot out.
- Money for drinks/lunch/transportation. We will return to the Peak Galleria by ~11:30 a.m. From there, you can go your own way or join an informal lunch at one of the restaurants at the peak. There is no cost to this event except for your own drinks, lunch, and transport to/from.
** Hike will be postponed if there are any thunderstorm warnings or Amber Rain signals on the day of. Please pay attention to the weather forecast and contact me if any questions.
** Helpful to bring a change of shirt or towel to change into something dry after the hike given the strong Air Conditioning inside and on buses.
