MML HK trail 1-3 with shortcuts
6th March 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
FOR NEXT MONDAY PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR THIS FASTER HIKE
We will follow the standard MML route which will take us on HK trail 1-3 with a couple of shortcuts and end walking up the little diversion next to Aberdeen Reservoir Road to finish at Wan Chai Gap. The whole route will take us around 3 hours, reaching Wan Chai Gap between 12:15 and 12:45 pm. To arrive at The Peak there are multiple transport options. These include walking up, catching The Peak Tram (HKD $32 one way) and also PLB and regular bus options which you can check at the transport link above. The meeting point is on the outside patio at Starbucks (or inside if it’s raining or there is no room).
Trail end: Stubbs Road at Wanchai Gap Park. There are various easy routes home from the finish point and I will be walking to Pacific Place 3 in Admiralty afterwards which adds another couple kilometres.
Speed: 2.8 (brisk hiking pace. For those with a shorter stride you may need to jog for 50-100m occasionally to keep up with the pace)
Length: 3.0 (16-18km)
Gradient (Ascent): 2.0 (about 300m)
Surface: 2.0 (paved surfaces and well-marked trails)
Contact: Susie (5633 1109)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION All of this route is on paved surface or well-defined dirt trails. We will go at a brisk hiking pace (around 10-11 min/km on the flat) with a couple of very short breaks. Please bring plenty of water or sports drink – I recommend at least 1.5 litres of fluid, but please be aware of your own needs. There are no resupply points on the route after we leave The Peak until we reach Wan Chai Gap. There are multiple early exit points to public transportation. If you cannot maintain the brisk pace, I can direct you to these.
