Dragon’s Back offers an accessible 90-minute to two-hour jaunt with sensational panoramas of beaches and mansions, distant mountains and across the South China Sea. It’s also one of the best known, hence busiest treks, so head out early or go in the late afternoon to avoid the hordes. To get there, take a bus from Shau Kei Wan or cab to To Tei Wan on Shek O Road. After a steep 15- to 20-minute climb, you’ll spy signposts to the main trail, which undulates across several hills, ending at the Correctional Institute on Shek O Road. If time permits, carry on to Big Wave Bay for a well-deserved burger and craft beer on the beach.
