This Sunday I wasn’t in a mood to do a strenuous hike so hubby and I decided to do the Aberdeen Country Park from the Wan Chai Gap road.
Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes from the Police Museum. Add 30 minutes more if starting from Wan Chai Gap Road.
How to get there:Cameron road. The trail starts there.
We walked down the very concrete slope. It was nice and cool even though it was 3:30 pm.
We kept on to the concrete and take Lady Clementi’s ride as we wanted to cover the Aberdeen country park as the hubby had never done this trail before.
We walked towards the upper reservoir and the barbecue pit on a slope.
There we found a sign post pointing towards the Aberdeen Nature Trail. We decided to do that. It was less crowded and pretty.
We saw a sign pointing towards the Lower Reservoir and followed it.
We came to the end of the nature trail and on to the Lower Reservoir. We walked over the bridge and decided to walk down to the reservoir.
We followed the sign pointing towards Aberdeen and walked down that concrete path. But the end was too near.
Here you could continue to the bus stop at Aberdeen and catch the green mini bus 4B back to Wan Chai Mtr.
We decided to walk back via the country park to Wan Chai.
The way back was a climb as we climbed up the slopes we so easily ran down 😁.
We finally reached Wan Chai Gap road. We walked down and then walked on Bowen road towards Bowen drive. We ended up at Kennedy road, walked down Momouth Path and reached Pacific place 3, Star street. From there we took a cab home. However, you’ll get many buses that’ll take you to your respective destination.
All in all a very easy hike, if you don’t climb up Wan Chai Gap road but still a doable hike.
Preferably hike on a weekday as on Sundays the country park is very crowded.
This is a child friendly and dog friendly hike and suitable for both young and old. If you use a stroller, stick to the concrete path.
