Jardine’s Lookout – Mount Parker to Mount Butler Drive, Happy Valley

It was a beautiful Sunday in October and we decided to take our canine daughter for her first hike. So Nigel, Dougie, Bella and I decided to walk towards Mount Parker via Greig’s road and explore Jardine’s lookout.

Duration: 2 hours with stops to click photos

Difficulty: 5/10 due to a slight elevation of 282 meters

How to get there: We walked from Sai Wan Ho to Taikoo and from Mtr exit B, we walked and took a left to Greig’s road. We followed the Wilson trail sign.

We climbed up the steps that takes you to this beautiful path filled with China fir trees.

Spotted a boar soaked in mud happily plonked in it.

We continued on our way, Bella and Dougie happily running along the path.

We continued till we came to the end of this path and crossed over to the start of the Sir Cecil’s ride trail. This is a beautiful trail. Got pictures of lovely views and beautiful blue skies.

We came to a board which stated Po Luen Path and Sir Cecil’s ride. We followed that path.

We came to a board which mentioned Braemar Hill so we decided to continue on that route. We passed a beautiful waterfall and my two little canine kids enjoyed it.

We followed the Jardine’s Lookout trail. It was beautiful.

We came to this little clearing which led to a little rock and from there we got the most beautiful views. We caught a glimpse of the sun setting.

Every step we took as we continued we got orange and blue hues along the way.

We continued walking….

We came to the end of this trail and took a right towards Mount Butler Drive.

We came to this sign and walked down the road.

We walked towards Happy Valley.

There was a bus stop where you could board the bus number 11 which would take you to Central.

We took a taxi back home as we had Dougie and Bella with us.

This was a fantastic hike. Perfect evening hike , kid friendly, pet friendly… NOT stroller friendly. However we saw loads of tiny tots along the way enjoying this trail.

Do try it. Happy Hiking!

NOTE: Please do not litter and carry your garbage/thrash with you. Also please remember to clean your pets poop if done on a concrete path.
