CHALLENGE II- Four Reservoirs

January 8-9, 2021: 59km

Detailed directions and elevation chart available soon

This challenge is all about runnable trail! Starting at the Tai Lam tunnel bus interchange, the route follows the Tai Lam Cheung country trail, with moderate climbs interspersed with flowing runnable trail. The route then joins Maclehose section 10, before following the southern end of Tai Lam Reservoir. More runnable sections bring you to Sham Tseng before the first convenience store stop for a refuel. Heading back up the hill, a concrete path brings you up to even more runnable trail among forest, along the Yuen Chuen Ancient Trail and for another spell on the Maclehose. A downhill section brings you to Ho Pui Reservoir, before heading back up and over undulating trail for the second refueling stop at Tsuen King circuit. A brief catchwater section then leads to uphill concrete path and the delightfully runnable Lung Mun trail, before the final section heads back downhill past Shing Mun Reservoir, yet more runnable trail on Golden Hill, and back to urbanisation to finish in Cheung Sha Wan for easy transport home.
