Starting and finishing at Discovery Bay Ferry Pier, this trail goes up the side of Discovery Bay over Nim Shue Wan, past the golf course, down through Trappist Monastery and back to Discovery Bay via the costal route through Nim Shue Wan.

On a clear day you can get some great photos overlooking Discovery Bay, Disneyland, Peng Chau, and you can even see all the way to Central if you’re lucky.
On the wildlife side, spiders, in particular the Giant Golden Orb Weaver are plentiful during the summer months, otherwise wildlife may be a little sparse.
Fantastic views of Discovery Bay, Disneyland, Peng Chau, Central
This is a short hike, but can be a little strenuous for the novice hiker in the first section.
