Eagle's Nest Nature Trail is a circular route orbiting around the mid-slopes of Eagle's Nest (Tsim Shan). The hill is a famous roosting place of the Black Kite, which originates the name Eagle's Nest. You can enjoy the natural scenery along the trail. Gazing down is Kowloon Reservoir. Completed in 1910, the reservoir was the first water storage facility in Kowloon. Together with the nearby Shek Lei Pui Reservoir, Kowloon Reception Reservoir and Kowloon Byewash Reservoir, it forms the Kowloon Group of Reservoirs. On this trail, you can learn about Shiuying Bamboo, a flora species named after renowned botanist Dr. Hu Shiuying and different plant species like lichens, bryophytes, Reevesia, Sandpaper Vine and Silverback Artocarpus. A little way forward, the view across Central New Territories, where the uplands of Kam Shan, Smugglers' Ridge and Smugglers' Pass, Tai Mo Shan, Needle Hill and Grassy Hill roll are seen.
