Walk description

Part of the Hong Kong Trail (a 7.7-kilometer extended walking route crossing through the Island) the section that takes you from Mount Parker to Tai Tam Road. Taking approximately 1 hours and 50 minutes to complete, this trail consists of mostly flat ground and shaded paths. At 532 meters, Mount Parker is the second highest peak on the HK island, overlooking the Quarry Bay area in the east. One of the few mountains in Hong Kong which has escaped mass residential development, the trail provides a tranquil and comfortable environment for hikers; in particular, a natural canopy of sorts exists because of the abundance of trees acting to shield them from the piercing sun. You will also find a number of rare species of vegetation along the way. Follow by Hong Pak Country Trial is generally an easy downhill walk towards Tai Tam Intermediate Reservoir, followed by a short 1.25km unpaved hike towards Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir. There are some opportunities to see wildlife along this section of Hong Kong Trail. When we hiked it we spotted butterflies and moths, moth larva and some various fish and some turtles near the reservoirs. The end of Hong Kong Trail Stage 6 will put you on Tai Tam Road, where a bus or taxi can take you to either Stanley or Chai Wan after a short walk to the bus stop
