Sunny Bay to Tai Shan (HK Disney and Inspiration Lake lookout)

Duration:  5.5 km (2h)

Difficulty: 7/10. 254m elevation gain. But slippery on the way back down.

Cel phone coverage: Everywhere

Water needs: 0.75 liters. 70% shaded. 

Appreciation: 7/10 for the Disney fans.

Exercise Area: No

Transportation:  Sunny Bay MTR there and back.

Why it's worth it:

Right off the Sunny Bay MTR, head left and up the escalator.

Exit 'A'

Go right, pass the toilets.

You will see this little building on your right, go around.

The pedestrian underpass so you can go under the train tracks.

Right out of the underpass subway, take the stairs up...

Then head right on the road in front of you, then right again at the crossroad

After about 400m on that road (shortly after the tunnel), you will see  stairs on your left and multiple levels of metal railings. Leave the road and go climb these stairs.

All the way up the stairs until there are no more...

Then follow the plastic tube to the trail (yep)

About 35-40 minutes into the hike (from the MTR exit), you will reach this point where you must make a hard-right and up. Plastic tubing are good indicators.
This fork is just after the derelict house/school.

You keep going up until you reach the second altitude marker. That's it!
Easy enough? Enjoy the view.
When you are done, you can just retrace your steps back to the MTR

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!
