7/10. 260m ascent in stream. Slippery

6.5/10. There are better stream. However, some of the waterfalls are quite nice

Ferry to Mui Wo. Take any of the buses there (we took #1) and get off at the Swire Holiday Village stop.
Return via bus to Mui Wo, or walk there.

Why it's worth it:

Get off the bus at Swire Holiday Village, on South Lantau road.
Keep walking in the seem direction the bus was going

About 120m (2 minutes) into your walk along South Lantau road, you'll see a road on the right. Take it

Then, no more a few tens of meters into the path, you'll see a concrete path on your right. There are concrete basins right after. Can't miss it. Take the path. Note that you'll see the house on the left in the distance. Don't try to go through there. After about 50m, you'll get to the stream

Many pools to have a swim in...

After about 2.5 hours, you'll reach the South Lantau Country trail crossing the stream. Exit here on the right. 
You can then walk all the way to Mui Wo, or take a bus back at South Lautau road.
