My suggested route for hiking Section 8 of MacLehose trail are as follows.

  1. Take MTR to Tai Po Market (大埔墟) MTR station, then take a taxi to Yuen Tun Ha. If it is possible, you can also drive to Yuen Tun Ha directly.

  2. Walk for about 1.5 miles along the Wilson Trail Section 7 to Lead Mine Pass.

  3. Start Section 8 from the Lead Mine Pass.

  4. Reach the end of Section 8. Take Bus 51 there to Tsuen Wan (荃灣) MTR station.
