Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail information
This excellent 4.4km-long trail, which should take from two to 2½ hours, leads from the Plover Cove Country Park Visitor Centre at Tai Mei Tuk and heads northeast for 4km to Bride’s Pool ; there are signboards numbered 1 to 22, so there is little danger of getting lost. The scenery is excellent and the two waterfalls at Bride’s Pool are delightful, but the place gets packed on the weekend.
You can either return to Tai Mei Tuk via Bride’s Pool Rd on foot or catch green minibus 20C, which stops at Tai Mei Tuk before carrying on to Tai Po Market East Rail station.
Those looking for a more strenuous hike can join stage No 9 of the Wilson Trail at Tai Mei Tuk on the Plover Cove Reservoir and head west into the steep Pat Sin Leng range of hills to Wong Leng Shan (639m). The trail then carries on westward to Hok Tau Reservoir and Hok Tau Wai (12km, four hours).
