Wong Chuk Shan boulder trackway [????- ]
(Switch to the OSM map to get a better view of the footpaths in this area.)
Named after: This track passes through the ruins of Wong Chuk Shan village.
- 1???: The year that Wong Chuk Shan village was settled may give an idea of when this track was built.
Directions: The map below is copied from the Sai Kung & Clear Water Bay sheet of the Countryside series of maps. The path starts at A, where the main Mui Tsz Lam - Sai Kung path crosses a bridge. To follow this path, don't cross the bridge, instead follow the path to the right, up the valley. At B you'll pass through the ruins of Wong Chuk Shan village, and some impressive dry-stone retaining walls. At C you'll reach the Maclehose Trail.
The B-C section of the track is marked with a dotted line, which the key says means "difficult / indistinct or seasonally overgrown". I was expecting a difficult walk, trouble finding the path, and lots of crashing through bushes. In fact the path is in good shape, and is a clear walk (there are a few trees that have blown down across the path in typhoons, but they are easy to clamber over). Here's a view of the top section of the path, not far from C.
We walked this track as part of a circular walk, starting and ending at Siu Lek Yuen.
