Ma On Shan Family Walk is located on the hillside of Ma On Shan, Hong Kong’s fourth tallest peak at an elevation of 702 metres. The family walk starts and ends inside the large barbecue site, making it an ideal place to have a barbecue, relax and exercise, and get to know of the other side of our city at weekends. The walk has one viewing point that command breathtaking vistas extending from Ma On Shan New Town, which was developed in the 1980s, to Tolo Harbour and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which is located on a mountain as well as views of Ma On Shan Country Park and Shing Mun River in Sha Tin New Town. Other highlights along the trail include Ma On Shan Mine, whose traces still remain in the woodlands, and Grace Youth Camp inside Ma On Shan Village. Formerly Yan Kwong Lutheran Church and a village school complex before the revitalisation project, Grace Youth Camp is a Grade III historical building and allows visitors to explore the mining times a century ago.
