The hill of Hung Hong Lo Fung

Along the wooded trail not far ahead, the hill of Hung Hong Lo Fung, not high with a range pole at the top, could be seen on the left far where is also a hot spot for photographers. Heading to the junction (there is a step on your right rear), take the left side path that climbs to the hill. At its entry and along the way, there are some ribbons for guidance of the way. But it is slightly steep near the top. After the short climb, it leads to the hilltop. Looking far around, the vision is very broad. It offers a full view over Causeway Bay, Central and Tsim Sha Tsui of Kowloon, where is a good sight for Victoria Harbour and the sunset. Afterward, retrace your way downhill and continue on along Sir Cecil's Ride to the left.

Note: Climbing the hill would clamber slightly.

Branch: If not climb the hill, you could continue to follow Sir Cecil's Ride.
