Horse Rock in Lion Rock 石馬+ Beacon Hill Gully 畢架山沖溝

Route: Wong Tai Sin MTR Station > Fat Chong Temple 法藏寺> Horse Rock Ridge 石馬脊> Lion Rock 獅子山> Reunification Pavilion 回歸亭> Beacon Hill Gully 畢架山沖溝> Lung Cheung Road 龍翔道

A hard 3 BOOT route is proposed for 19 April 2015 Sunday to visit the Horse Head Rock and Beacon Hill Gully around Lion Rock Hill.

This is an exploration hike as most (or all) of us have never been to these places. They are not indicated in the country park map, so we are going to depend on information obtained from other experienced hikers to aid our navigation. We may also do side trips not listed in the proposed route.

Due to the scouting nature of the hike, the meeting time will be set earlier at 9:50am (10 minute waiting rule applies) at Wong Tai Sin MTR Station Concourse at Exit A. We will walk (or take public transport) to Fat Chong Temple 法藏寺to find the trail entrance.

Please be alerted that this is a strenuous hike and is not suitable for casual hikers. Do come prepared and bring all the usual gear, in particular lots of water, snacks and lunch, a torch, gloves, long trousers, long sleeves T-shirts (as buskwhack expected)  a hat, umbrella/rain gear, shoes with good grip, a map of the area, etc.

If it is raining or threatening to rain (thunderstorm warning), we may change our route where appropriate. If in doubt on the morning of the walk, call 8209-0517.
