Pottinger Peak Country Trail Information


The 1.9 km Pottinger Peak Country Trail starts at Ma Tong Au of Shek O. It runs along the Pottinger Peak catchment. Turn left onto an uphill path just before coming to the end of the catchwater. It takes you all the way to Seaview Pavilion for a scenic stopover. Sitting on the mid-slope of the 312m Pottinger Peak, it gives stunning views of the Mt. Collinson and the adjacent Dragon's Back. The latter is a famous hiking route where one can have magnificent views of Shek O and Big Wave Bay below. To the north, urban Chai Wan and Siu Sai Wan command another mood.

Cape Collinson with Pottinger Peak at the back formerly known as Sai Wan, Chai Wan got its name from the rich local production of firewood. Hakka people first settled in Chai Wan in the early 18th Century. In the 1980's, with the completion of the MTR Island Line and Eastern Corridor, Chai Wan's access to other parts of the territory and urban development was greatly improved.

Siu Sai Wan was known as Chai Wan Tsai in the old days, when the district was an isolated beach. Today, it becomes a well developed residential community. Take the downward steps from the catchment and the trail ends at Cape Collinson Road.
