Right off the bus (it is the terminus), cross the street and take the path down on the left of the school. Just follow the stairs and path afterwards

We will be looping back here but for the moment, keep going straight so we can go to the Red Incense Burner rock.

About 400m into the hike, you will get to this fork. Go to the right towards the Red Insense Bruner rock.

May atop Red Incense Burner rock. About 100m from the fork.

Retrace your steps towards where you came until you reach this point.
Take a right.

Just before the bridge, enter the stream and do a little bit in the stream, and some along when you cannot do it dry.

You will eventually reach this pavilion, go around on the right, then re-enters the stream immediately on the left.

Keep going and you will eventually see the radio antenna in front of view.
At that point, you are almost done in the stream

At the end of the stream, head right.

Up the stairs and then left. The radio antenna station will be visible on your right.

Getting close to the quarry...

After the curb past the quarry, take the stairs on your left.

At the top of the stairs, head right.

Right after the gallery.

Go straight, don't be tempted to go left or right even though the signs indicate Wung Nai Chung Gap.

Almost at Hong Kong Parkview (visible in the distance). 
Once you reach the road, head right and continue until you hit Wung Nai Chung Gap road. The bus stop is right in front of you.
