Located at the northwestern corner of Plover Cove Country Park, Bride’s Pool Nature Trail meanders along the valley and skirts along cascades. The trail is easy to walk and ideal for families who want to go on a hike at weekends. In addition to the spectacular waterfalls, there are other hot spots for social media check-ins. One example is the pot-holes of Bride’s Pool. These natural wonders are formed when water, as well as small pebbles, continuously tumbles onto the cracks on rocks of the river bed, which eventually erode away and expand into potholes. With such impressive scenery, Bride’s Pool also has tales to tell about the origin of its name. Legend has it that a bride fell into the pool and lost her life on the way to the wedding because the wedding sedan-chair porter lost his footing. Since then, the pool has been referred to as Bride’s Pool. It is also said that the bride’s vanity mirror gave a nearby waterfall the name ‘Mirror Pool Waterfall’. The nature trail passes by the hundred-year-old Bride’s Pool Stone Bridge, which was built in 1906 to enable villagers to commute between Wu Kau Tang and Chung Mei Village conveniently.
