Appreciation: 8/10. Nice views. A rock rhino head!
Difficulty: 7/10. Slippery slopes
Cel phone coverage: Everywhere
Water needs: 0.5 liter
Transportation: Take bus 14 from Sai Wan Ho MTR station, Exit A (stop is right at the exit). Get off at the end stop, Stanley Fort. Return by either walking to Stanley and then taking whichever bus you want, or again, taking bus 14 back to Sai Wan Ho.
Why it's worth it:
The trail head is right by bus 14's final stop (Stanley Fort). These are military barracks.
Take the path up at the left of the gate
|The path follows the fence|
After about a 10 minutes climb, you'll have reached the top of the hill.
Take a right through the bushes
|Left immediately into the bushes|
|The view will open up. Head to the right of the big round rock|
|You can see the path at this point, just follow. I circled your destination*|
|This is the rhino rock from behind|
|Here... So, you can always retrace your steps back to the end-stop of bus 14. But instead, I suggest, you go around the little building to discover some more cool stuff...|
|A little gem of a bamboo jungle!|
|Left, behind the big rock|
|You'll see a water pipe, just follow it on the right. It will lead you to the road. Head right on the road until you reach the bus stop to return to Sai Wan Ho. Alternately, you can go down to the beach!|
|St,Stephen's beach. Quite pretty|
