This trail starts off steep and hard. Huge unpaved steps all the way to the top of the hill overlooking Midvale Village will get you sweaty, hot and bothered in the shortest possible time.

This loop trail starts off on Discovery Bay Road, just opposite the playground down from SKH Wei Lun Primary School.

How to Get to the Trail Head

Walk to the park below SKH Wei Lun Primary School

On a clear day you can get some great photos overlooking Discovery Bay & Disneyland, and you can even see all the way to Central if you’re lucky.

This is a short hike, but can be a very strenuous for the novice hiker in the first section, especially if it is sunny as there is no shade.
