Fei Ngo Shan Road

Beginning from the junction of Fei Ngo Shan Road and Clear Water Bay Road, along Fei Ngo Shan Road it winds gently up. After a few turns, head the one-way Fei Ngo Shan Road by taking the left fork at the junction of Pak Fa Lam Road. Passing through the pavilion and going ahead, on the left pay attention to a stone tablet painted "328" in red by hikers at the entry of the uphill path.

Kowloon Peak

The rough path starts a flight of steps with steep ascents in part. It goes up along the eastern slope of Kowloon Peak. Up ahead, you could look back the sublime scenery over Hebe Haven (Pak Sha Wan) in Sai Kung region. Further up, it becomes gentle with a broad view. Ascending to the top of the ridge, follow the path on the left that leads up to the transmittion station, and then take a short flight of steps on the right to the hilltop. At the summit, it offers a full view over the eastern of Kowloon. Towards the north, the rolling and sprawling hills of Kowloon peaks such as Lion Rock and Tate's Ridge are also with the sight.

Middle Hill and Tung Shan

Return down to the junction at the electric pole. Follow the trail ahead, it undulates gently and contours along the ridge towards the north to middle hill. (You could clearly look at the trail from the hilltop.) Both side of the path was overgrown in part with weeds over the waist, but you could see silvergrasses distributed full on the green hillsides especially during autumn. Along the undulated peaks, Sai Kung on the right and Kowloon on the left are within the sight at the same time as if a hude green screen separates the natural world from the city. Beyond several knolls, it comes to a crest before the electric tower. After a fairly steep descent to the electric tower, passes through it and then goes ahead. Through a thicket, the trail arrives the pavilion beside Fai Ngo Shan Road.

Note: From Middle Hill to Fei Ngo Shan Road, there is a steep descent!

After skirting along the hillside gently down to the junction of Shatin Pass Road and Jat's Incline, take Shatin Pass Road ahead that leads to Sha Tin Pass, and finally winds down to Tsz Wan Shan.

Summary

It was impressive for the mighty aura that looked up at the southern cliffy escarpment of Kowloon Peak from its foot. I think it is the easiest way to the hilltop from the eastern slope.
