The last two sections of the Hong Kong trail are very different. The first, a long flat walk tracing the coastline of Tai Tam bay with sweeping views and a beach at the end to lunch and swim. The next section a tough climb t start, followed by a spectacular ridge walk before descending slowly through woods to Big Wave bay. It’s the longest and toughest of the walks in this series but well worth the effort.

Take a bus or ferry to the north end of Tai Tum Tuk Reservoir Dam then look for the sign to the trail on your right about 100m up the road. Follow the path with the stream on your left and the bay on your right for around 6 KM until you reach a small beach. From there you turn left at the sign post for the Dragon’s back, head up to Shek O road, then across and continue up and along the Dragon’s back. After you finish the ridge it’s a long walk through the woods to a road. Turn left and follow the signs down to Big Wave bay. From the bay go up the hill to your left where you will find transport out.
