It was not easy to find the beginning of this trail and the Countryside series map seems to mislead you into thinking you can cross the railway tracks or the Penny Bay highway hence you will see a couple of false starts in my tracks here! But once you get onto the path, it's another bush bash to get to the first trig post at Tai Shan and then a much more open path and a relatively hard slog to the 291m trig post at the top of Fa Peng Teng. Thereafter, it's a fairly steady descent and then up to Tai Pik Shan. Shortly after the peak, there was supposed to be a track down to Sze Pak Wan but I couldn't find it so ended up descending to Sam Pak Au and enduring more scratches through a bush bash to the service reservoir and it's associated service road leading to the Discovery Bay road that leads back to Sunny Bay.
Spectacular views are to be had from the top of Fa Peng Teng. Ships, aircraft and trucks are all visible from this point!
Some rather interesting flowers were blooming on the lower slopes. I thought it is too early for these to bloom but it was 35 deg C at the top of the mountain today so almost summer temperatures!
