Introduction:
Hong Kong Trail Section Two begins at Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road, you follow the cement vehicular road and pass the Pok Fu Lam Reservoir. This reservoir was the first water storage facility on Hong Kong Island. The mature secondary forests in the catchment area have been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Besides, this is a good place for visitors to enjoy the nature environment.

Continuing on, at a fork of the path, two signs indicate whether there is a through road for horses up ahead. The paved hacking trail is a trotting route for the horses. The oldest public riding schools in Hong Kong is located here. This section of the trail has many rain shelters and benches.

The entire Section Two lies within the plantations of Pok Fu Lam Country Park. It is a lovely green hike with good shade and attractive flora all the way. At the end of the hacking trail is a flight of steps. Care is advised for the steps, as they are slightly more demanding than the paved footways. At a shelter, you can view Tin Wan, Aberdeen, Apleichau and Lamma Island. Moving on from this scenic spot and past a flight of steeper steps, the trail-heads southwest via a cement road alongside the catchwater. Here you can spot Hindu Datura (Datura metel), one of Hong Kong's four most poisonous plants. A few steps ahead, you arrive at Peel Rise, the end of Hong Kong Trail Section Two.
