If you are an amateur hiker or looking for a family-friendly hike, this section, which enjoys views of much of Sha Tin, Tai Wai, Tolo Harbour, and as far as Ma On Shan, has you covered. Section 5 starts with a footpath that leads uphill for a kilometre before descending to the hillside, which makes up much of this section. As you walk along the catchwater on the hillside, look up to the left of the summit and you will see Amah Rock – its distinctive shape resembles a woman carrying a baby on her back watching for the return of her husband. The hillside is also a riot of colour, ablaze with a diversity of flora species, including Cape Jasmine, Ear-leaved Acacia, Honeysuckle, Schima, Climbing Bauhinia, and Gloryberry – scenery you do not see every day in the city. It later joins a fitness trail that connects to the finishing point, Tai Po Road.
