Beginning at the Shatin Pass and intersecting the Maclehose Trail, hike up to Unicorn Ridge and to the path leading over the top of Lion Rock itself. After taking in the views we then have a very steep descent on steps down nearly 200m to rejoin the Maclehose Trail, which we will follow as it climbs another 130m over Beacon Hill (457m). From there it's another long descent, largely on steps, to join the Eagle's Nest Nature Trail, which we will take around the south side of Eagle's Nest, possibly encountering macaques before we reach the end of the hike at the Tai Po Road.
