The trail is not too hard because it has a lot of stairs and stops. It's very nice because it's right in the city so you just can easily access there. Around 1h30 for walking up. Remember to bring water.

I've done a lot of hiking, am ex-military, in reasonably good shape still, and let me tell you at the outset that this hike is not easy. OK, now about the trail... The starting point is Wong Tai Sin MTR. From there you have two...More
