Hong Kong Trail Section 7 is an easy, flat, concrete trail that runs from Tai Tam Road to To Tei Wan, the west coast of Shek O. The majority of the trail is lined with a railing on the left side to prevent hikers from falling into the water channel that runs parallel to the path. To the right are views of Tai Tam Tuk, Red Hill, and Stanley. It’s a clean, easy, and relaxing walk. Towards the end is a small beach where Hong Kong Hobie Club is located.
Section 7 is extremely flat and easy to walk. The elevation remains at 40-60m for the entire trail until the end near To Tei Wan, where there is a high ascent to 140m that leads to Shek O Road—the finishing point of Section 7 and starting point of Section 8, Dragon’s Back Trail.
90% of the trail is a narrow strip of concrete with railings on the left side. There’s a small section dirt path approaching To Tei Wan, and after that is a series of concrete steps that leads to the finishing point at Shek O Road bus stop.
