Bowen Road Fitness Trail – E

Monday mornings are sometimes a tad difficult for me to be gung Ho and climb up mountains so I decided to take a taxi up Bowen Drive to the start of this easy, short and sweet trail.

Difficulty: 1/10 it’s a straight, concrete walk

Duration: 1 hour at a glacial pace

How to get there: I took a cab to the start of the trail up Bowen drive on Kennedy Road as there are no buses that ply there.

The other option is take a number 15 bus from admiralty MTR exit C1 and alight at Hong Kong Adventist hospital on Stubbs road and cross over to the start Bowen road trail. Number 6 to Wong Nai Chung and then walk to the star of the trail on Stubbs road.

Also you can walk up the steep slope of Wan Chai Gap Road which connects to the Bowen road fitness trail.

There’s the green mini bus number 9 that goes from Magazine gap road that passes Bowen road.

The easiest would be to take the 15 number bus and alight at Hong Kong Adventist hospital on Stubbs road or cab it up to Bowen drive on Kennedy Road.

I started near the Bowen road gardens and a board also gave the trail.

Whilst I walked on this trail I got lovely views of the high rises of Hong Kong . There are many sitting areas too on route if one needs to rest.

I walked down this trail and passed by the Wan Chai Gap Road intersection following the sign that stated Lover’s rock and Bowen road.

There was a lovely park and toilet facilities available too.

I continued on the trail and came across statues and pictures along the way.

On the way I across a board that stated Lover’s rock and climbed up the stairs to the top. What lovely statues adorned this path.

I continued up another flight of steps and I was graced by a rock structure of the mighty thallus 😁.

I got some lovely views from that point and walked down to continue on the trail.

I came across another flight of steps and climbed them too.

I soon came to the end of the trail near Stubbs road and decided to walk back to where I started.

This is a very nice trail if you want to run as I passed by loads of runners along the way. Also it’s perfect for kids and babies in strollers ( if you take the cab to the start of the fitness trail or push up the stroller Bowen drive or alight at Stubbs road and start there)

This is a very short 3 kilometre trail so you can walk back to where you started or walk down wan Chai Gap Road and have a cup of coffee at Eric Kayser the boulangerie.

Do try this trail. Sometimes it’s nice to try something short and simple.

Happy hiking !
