Quarry Bay Street
Hares - Sophia & Octopussy
A thoroughly entertaining and extremely comprehensive tour of the shiggy of Braemar Hill. Three Wimp Rambo splits meant it was fun for the whole hash family!
The pack started at the sitting out area next to the Quarry Bay market. On On! Off down Quarry Bay street until we hit the main watercourse coming down off the hill. Up under the water pipes up until we hit the Mount Parker Road trail. On trail into shiggy on the Rambos and up a terribly steep and treeey bank for miles and miles until we finally came out on the Quarry Bay Jogging Trail.
Sprinted round that for a bit and then up steep steps on left towards the Braemar Hill listening post. At this point it all became terribly confused. It wasn’t down the secret catchwater but instead, right towards the main aerials. But then back left and down again to the RF post. Then up some hill I have never climbed and back onto Sir Cecil’s Ride. Off up that path back towards the RF post again and then left into the bushes, down a bank over a small creek and a whole lot of confusion. Shiggy shiggy shiggy. Up to the RF post yet again then back straight into the place we had just come from off down the main river.
The river descent was great and would have been even better if my torch hadn’t started playing up. But it is a wonderful scramble and finally we joined up with Po Luen Path down at the sitting out area. Then right up the steps and another Rambo split over a big hill covered in bamboo. A particularly steep descent through eroded gullies until we hit another path. Then right round and then down down down back to the Mount Parker Road and on home. The map
