Lying in the north western corner of Plover Cove Reservoir,
Bride's Pool Nature Trail is a route that introduces
local wildlife and flora. At the Bride's Pool bus
terminus, the green-roofed Lion Pavilion welcomes
you. Follow the path by the pavilion, there are
sweet sounds of birds and rippling stream to keep
A little way ahead the trail crosses over the top of Bride's Pool.
Gazing down, silvery falls plunge mightily down the
rock face. Legend has it that a bride passed by this
treacherous part on her way to the wedding. In bad
weather, the wedding sedan chair fell into the pool
and she was washed down the waterfall. In memories
of this ill-fated bride who got drown there, the
pool was named Bride's Pool.
Up ahead on the
river bed you find pot-holes carved by swirling sand
and gravels which are washed down by water seeping
through rock joints. This nature trail passes by
the Bride's Pool Stone Bridge, which was built in
1906 by local villagers to provide a link between
Wu Kau Tang and Chung Mei Village. After the bridge,
back to Bride's Pool Road and comes to an end.
