Lantau Section 12/12

Appreciation: 5/10. There are much nicer trails to be hiked. Lots of gigantic spiders if you're into arachnids. One great view of Pui-O but that's it, the rest is pretty boring.

Why it's worth it: 

330m elevation
Total: ~2 1/4 hours

Garmin GPS route: 

4/10. A little bit of uphill but nothing to scare a monkey.

Cel phone coverage: Some coverage on trail.

Water needs: 1 liter.

Transportation: We did it in reverse. Ferry from Central Pier 6 to Mui Wo. 35 to 50 minutes depending on whether you take the fast or slow ferry. At the end of the trail, you can bus back to Mui Wo. NLB 1 or 4.

Head left right out of the ferry, walk by the McDonalds, following the shore. First road on the left.

On that road, there's will be signage for the trail, although they are easy to miss.

After a little while. This was a little bit confusing but head left, don't stay on the road.

Signage is pretty good.

Almost there. If you are not bent of doing the full Lantau trail, I would suggest you skip section 12. The girlie drinks at Pui-O's Oh La La are pretty refreshing however...

Please, don't litter!

Hiking is about communion with nature. So please pickup after yourself. There's no excuse to leave plastic bags, water bottles or any rubbish on or around the trails; if you managed to bring it, you can manage to bring it back!
