Devil's Claw Rock (魔爪石), Snoopy Rock (狗頭石), and Chung Hom Kok Battery (舂磡角舊炮台)

Duration: 4.5km (2h without stops)

Difficulty: 8/10. Going down to the Devil's claw is very slippery. 

Cel phone coverage: 90% 

Water needs: 1 liter. 30% shaded. 

Appreciation: 7/10. Little bit of history. A few Instagrammable rocks, if you are into this.

Exercise Area: No

Transportation: Take bus 6, 6X, 65, or 66 and get off at "Chung Hom Kok Beach; Chung Hom Kok Road" stop. Return via any of the multiple buses in Stanley's bus terminal.

Why it's worth it:

Just off the bus, go straight into Chung Hom Kok Road and about 20m, before the metal building, you will follow a path up that is marked with a few ribbons. At this point, just follow my instructions on: https://www.trailwatch.hk/?t=activities&aid=823131

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!
