Sitting in the southeastern corner of Hong Kong Island, the 701 ha Shek O Country Park extends along the ridgeline that links Pottinger Peak with Mount Collinson in the north, and crosses Wan Cham Shan and Shek O Peak (Dragon's Back) to reach D'Aguilar Peak in the south.
There are 3 major hiking trails inside the Country Park, namely Sections 7 and 8 of Hong Kong Trail that leads from Tai Tam Road to To Tei Wan and from To Tei Wan to Big Wave Bay respectively; and Pottinger Peak Country Trail that runs from Pottinger Gap in Shek O to Cape Collinson Road. All 3 trails are scenic routes offering stunning vistas of Stanley, Tai Tam, Shek O and outlying islands, as well as the deep indent of Tai Tam Bay and Clear Water Bay. Of them, Dragon’s Back, covered by Section 8 of Hong Kong Trail, was selected “Asia’s Best Urban Hike” by the Time Magazine in 2004.
