Yes, Netvigator took off this guide at least 2 years ago!

It was written and produced by my former publishing dept.
I still have a printed copy somewhere, if you're interested to borrow it...

Hey! I'm organizing a group hike (for beginner hikers) and wanted to know if it was possible/easy to reach Pak Kok from Lamma Winds? I guess you must absolutely go through Tai Ping village? Thank you!

You can go up the track on the hill behind the turbine, down the other side, join up with the other cable route.

Follow that (you bypass Tai Peng on your left) down to its end at the coast, then turn west along the beach and there's a footpath to Pak Kok village. You might be able to shortcut from the cable route down to Pak Kok san Tsuen.

Good, thanks! "Going down the other side", is that, going on the eastern face of Lamma, towards the north?

Hi! Actually, I just found a map from the Hong Kong Mountain Bike Association:

http://www.hkmba.org/public/project%20x ... d%20up.JPG

They also have a nice page explaining biking trails, which I assume could apply to people on foot as well.

I'm guessing that the Snake's Tail is that track on the hill behind the turbine you are talking about?...

I added a map to my post.

I don't know the bike trails by name.

I know the mountain bike trails by name and the Snake Tail is NOT the same as on Alan's map. At first it is the same, till just beyond the hill (Mt. Panorama as we call it sometimes) in front of Lamma Winds, but then it forks off and goes all the way through the forest and only meets the Cable Route down in Tai Peng. It's a very pretty and interesting path to walk, even though I usually take it upwards, as it gets steep in places, and instead walk downhill following the path along Cable Route on Alan's map.

Of course, there's a nice shortcut from near the end of the Cable Route to Pak Kok Kau Tsuen, no need to follow it to the very end. Just turn left when the Cable Route has reached sea level and follow the nature path through some fields. It could take well less than half an hour for the entire walk from Lamma Winds, but there's a lot of beautiful late-summer flora and fauna to see (and photograph) along the way....
