After more than an hour, we reached the Dragon’s Back, a summit 284m high with sweeping views of Big Wave Bay on our right and Tai Tam Bay on our left. The effort was worth it. After that, we proceeded downhill on the difficult uneven trail.
Another hour later, we had to make a decision to take the Pottinger Country Trail or Trail 8 which indicated “Big Wave Bay”. We chose the later which was out of my original plan. It was a bush trail, steep, rocky and uneven. My new walking stick endured my body weight as I relied on it to make my descent. We did that for another hour, with fitter folks passing us by. I was full of regret for not doing my homework and missing the Pottinger which promises a sweeping vista once it emerge from the woods until it reaches the bay.
