Description:






Tai Mo Shan Road ( 大帽山道) is a narrow road originating from Route Twisk, that leads to (but does not terminate at) the weather station at the top of Tai Mo Shan. Paved the whole way, the upper-most ~3km is blocked by a manned barrier gate, and is hence inaccessible to cars. A carpark exists at this point. Bicycles and pedestrians may continue to the top of the mountain, an enclosed restricted area in which lies Hong Kong's highest point (at 957m), a Doppler weather radar, and communications equipment.

Cows and oxen may be encountered along the entire length of the road. The road also makes for some spectacular panoramic scenery of Hong Kong, and several pull-off points exist along the road, perfect for a photo opportunity.

Until mid-2009, Stage 8 of the MacLehose Trail started at the road's intersection with Route Twisk, and ran along the entire section of Tai Mo Shan Road, and then continued towards Lead Mine Pass. The section of Stage 8 between Route Twisk and the carpark now starts at the KMB bus stop on Route Twisk and is diverted to a nearby dirt track with steps so that hikers and motorists are safely segregated. However, the old route still forms part of the annual Oxfam Trailwalker to ensure competitors are not easily confused.
