There are 3 hiking trails around the Shing Mun Reservoir (or Jubilee Reservoir), i.e. Maclehose Trail Stage 7, Wilson Trail Stage Stage 7 and Pineapple Dam Nature Trail.

Here hikers can experience two extremes of nature: in the rainy season, when the water level is high, trees are immersed in the water. In the dry season, hikers can walk closer to the center of the reservoir and see the roots of the trees exposed in the air.

To get to Shing Mun Reservoir, take minibus 82 outside Tsuen Wan MTR station and get off at the last stop.
