Shek O Country Park is Hong Kong Island's celebrated natural haven. The Dragon's Back, an undulating ridgetop trail between Wan Cham Shan and Shek O Peak, is the jewel of its crown. To experience this exhilarating route, follow Stage 8 of the Hong Kong Trail, which is the last and steepest section.
Facilities in Shek O Country Park include barbecue and picnic areas. There are public toilets, rain shelters and barbecue stoves near the Big Wave Bay Picnic Area, Shek O Cape Picnic Area and Shek O Beach.
Pottinger Peak Country Trail is a level catchment route that runs from Pottinger Gap to Cape Collinson Road. Shaded with trees, it gives delightful scenery. On your left and right are Pottinger Peak and Mount Collinson respectively. To the south of Mount Collinson, the rolling ridgelines of Wan Cham Shan and Shek O Peak strike a breathtaking presence the Dragon's Back. A hot hiking route, this trail is also a popular site for flying remote control model airplanes. On the uplands, you gaze across dreamy landscapes and seascapes of Big Wave Bay and Shek O, and the ever enchanting Dragon's Back. Against a contrasting backdrop of urban Chaiwan and Siu Sai Wan, this pristine domain seems almost celestial.
