Rocky Board Stream (石板坑)


Last Visit: 17 Feb 2013

Trip Description

This stream is called Rocky Board Stream (石板坑) because you can see a hugh rocky slope from afar. It has no big waterfall nor refreshing swimming pools. However, some the rocky slopes are smooth and wet, these could be an interesting challenge.

Location 1: Altitude 15M

The entrance of the stream lies behind this playground. You can get to the stream through a broken fence next to the pavilion. You will soon find a catchwater. The fastest way to start is to climb down to the catchwater. It is highly not recommended if the catchwater carries significant running water.

Location 2: Altitude 35M

We are now taking on the wet rocky slope. The rocky slope itself is rather smooth. When lubricated by water, it could be very slippery.

Location 3: Altitude 70M

Overcoming the slippery rocky slope.

At about 95M, there is exit on right. Of course, we keep pressing on.

Location 4: Altitude 110M

Here is a pile of big rubble which is the remains of landslide.
This is the broken catchwater. Break-Through Youth Centre (突破青年中心) is next to it.

At about 130M, there is an exit on the left.

At about 155M, the stream branch off to right and left.

Location 5: Altitude 165M

This is the left branch. This time we are not taking this left branch.
We take the right stream up. The rocky surfaces provide a lot more friction then the rock in down stream.

At about 225M, you can leave the stream on right and then cross back to the left bank at about 230M where we really left the stream.

Location 6: Altitude 300M

Before you get back to the main footpath, you have to dash through a pretty confusing forest. Although there are sparse guiding ribbons, you may still need a bit of luck and experience to find your way out. You will eventually arrive at the pathway of Nui Po Shan (女婆山).
