2. Pineapple Dam Nature Trail: a place to learn about nature
Earning its name from being home to an old pineapple plantation, the Pineapple Dam Nature Trail is about an hour’s walk. It’s a very easy hike and there are countless interesting trees to learn about along the way, including Liquidambars, Acacias, and more. There is also a wide variety of lichens, mosses, and other plants. It makes a great family hike for learning more about nature. The trail gets especially beautiful in autumn and winter when the leaves are red.
How to get there: Take minibus No. 82 from Shiu Wo Street in Tsuen Wan to "Shing Mun Reservoir Pineapple Dam Minibus Terminus". Alternatively, take a bus that passes through "Ho Fung College". Get off there and walk for about 20 minutes to the Pineapple Dam minibus terminus.
Duration: about 1 hour
