烏蛟騰>苗三古道>(三椏村>往灣 – 乘艇)>往灣西頂>(往灣>東灣>三椏村 – 乘艇)>犁三古道>烏蛟騰

天晴 / 26-34度 / 濕度58-87%

交通:港鐵大埔墟站乘20R小巴,總站「烏蛟騰」下車 / 回程乘20R小巴至港鐵大埔墟站 (到往灣及東灣,需自行租艇)
感想:行經「苗三」及「犁三」兩條古道,山路石路居多,但沒太多上下坡,景觀不俗,路程雖略長但易走。縱然已走過很多次,但依舊喜歡。往灣西頂雖不高,但看到印洲塘全景,讓人讚嘆不已。東灣水清沙幼,像去了東南亞的海灘般。每次到新界東北,站在不同地方看印洲塘,總是令我無比開心和感恩。
需時|長度:約五小時 / 11.53km
*注意:上落往灣西頂需要略為找路,建議由熟路人士帶領,新手及夏天不宜。請做足功課,預先下載路線,帶備地圖或開啟行山App跟著走。請穿著合適,攜帶足夠裝備如手套、行山杖、傘,以及食物和水。

Wu Kau Tang>Kau Kam Tso>Miu Sam Ancient Trail>(Sam A Wan>Wong Wan – Boat trip)>Wong Wan Sai Teng>(Wong Wan>Tung Wan>Sam A Wan – boat trip)>Lai Sam Ancient Trip>Wu Kau Tang

Transport: Take minibus no. 20R (near MTR Tai Po Market Station),  get off at the terminal  – Wu Kau Tang / Return by taking the same minibus (Need to rent a boat to Wong Wan and Tung Wan)

Feeling: Though it is a pretty long hike with no retreat point accessible by vehicle, it is easy to walk with mainly gentle footpaths and will pass two ancient trails (Lai Sam and Miu Sam Ancient Trail). Wong Wan Sai Teng is not high, but the panoramic view of Double Haven at the hilltop is impeccable! The crystal clear water and white powdery sand of Tung Wan, makes you feel like you were in South East Asia beach. Hiking in Northeast New Territories is my all time favorite!

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 11.7km, around five hours.

** Points to note:  Have to find the path to Wong Wan Sai Teng, better accompanied by experienced hikers and with the help of map or hiking app. Not suitable for inexperienced hikers and better to go in Autumn. Please wear appropriate gears, bring along the hiking stick, gloves, umbrella and stock up before you go.

交通:港鐵大埔墟站乘巴士75K或20C小巴至「大美督」 / 回程於新娘潭乘275R (只在星期日及公眾假期提供服務) 至港鐵大埔墟站
感想:今天走的自然教育徑,既有樹蔭,路況亦好,還有瀑布流水,確實不錯。但此路線需上走360米,夏天行走時需要一定體力。
需時:約三個半小時 / 7.18km
