Route
D3 - Monkey Hill - Shing Mun Reservoir
Brief Start at Kowloon Reservoir and walk northward along Golden Hill Road.  Follow the sign and continue along Section 6 of the MacLehose Trail. Climb the steps on the right and enter a gentle uphill footpath, which offers close-up views of the buildings at the bottom of the slope and long distance views of Tai Mo Shan and the neighbouring ridges. Continue northward along the MacLehose Trail and walk past the redoubts until reaching a barbecue site at Shing Mun Reservoir. Take a break before visiting Shing Mun Country Park Visitors Centre, Pineapple Dam Nature Trail and Butterfly Paradise.  There are uphill and downhill sections, parts of which are slightly rugged. Since Kam Shan Country Park is well-known for its large population of monkeys, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department has erected warning signs along the way to remind visitors not to feed them.
