It’s a rainy Monday morning and instead of sitting at home decided to do an easy hike. So I walked from home to the start of the Mount Parker green trail.
How to get there: Take the MTR to quarry bay and exit at A or to Taikoo and exit at B.
Walk towards the Mount Parker green trail.
Duration : 1 hour 30 minutes
Difficulty: 3/10 only the slope up Mount Parker is a tad steep.
Keep walking up Mount Parker. There are a lot of boards which gives information on the birds and insects that you’ll come across.
I decided to visit the Woodside education centre which is an old heritage building of Hong Kong.
Saw a lovely banyan tree and the Chinese New Year flowers which are in plenty on this trail.
Post that I walked up Mount Parker to get to Sir Cecil’s Ride
I passed the Quarry Bay tree walk sign and kept climbing the slope.
Found a nice barbecue area , a sit out area and clean toilets.
It was a rainy day and the fog covered the lovely sight.
Finally I reached the start of Sir Cecil’s ride.
The path was wet but the sights were lovely .
I came across loads of the Chinese New Year flowers which are in bloom in February.
I continued on the straight path
It was wet and foggy but I enjoyed every bit.
Got to see spider webs that looked like icicles.
And more of these Chinese New Year flowers
I continued straight, if you take the steps to your left you will reach the Wong Nai Chung trail. I didn’t want to do an arduous hike. I wanted to chill and enjoy the flowers and the rain.
Beautiful colours along the way.
I came to an intersection and walked towards the Po Luen Path
I decided to take the morning trail as I would have ended my hike soon with that path.
Walked a new path and saw such beauty
I reached a nice sit out area and then took the left and continued.
I continued till I came to a board which said morning walkers garden. I went straight.
I came across a lovely brook along the way .
Finally I came to the end of this path.
I continued towards Braemar Hill.
That was a beautiful walk too.
Lovely greenery and more of the CNY flowers.
Beautiful flowers along the way
I came to a board which stated Jardine lookout and Braemar Hill but I continued on the Braemar Hill path.
Passed some more beauty.
I walked down the slope and reached the mini bus bus stop and also the city bus bus stop on the opposite side.
So I took a number 85 bus and reached home. It takes you to an MTR too.
This was a lovely relaxed hike. I enjoyed walking in the rain.
You can do this one with kids too. They’ll really enjoy.
Happy hiking !!
