The Tinworth Trail starts in Sha Tau Kok at the corner of Sha Tau Kok Road and Shan Tsui Village Road. Go along Shan Tsui Village Road for approximately 500m until you see the obvious dirt trail on the left. Take this trail, which rises quickly about 400m giving spectacular views of Sha Tau Kok. At the top of the hill is an abandoned military observation post; turn left and go past all the buildings and continue on the trail (slightly overgrown but marked with ribbons) on top of the ridge. Eventually this meets a better marked trail which continues up and eventually just under the top of Robin’s Nest. If you have time, divert to the top of Robin’s Nest for great views over Shenzhen. Coming down you will pass a communications station and then take the concrete road down to Wo Keng Shan Road. Continue briefly along the road then carefully cross to a narrow road that will take you towards and then under the entry/exit road for the Cheung Shan Tunnel. Stage 1 of the Tinworth Trail finishes in the village of Tai Tong Wu at Sha Tau Kok Road. If needed, food and drinks are available at Ma Mei Ha Store near the start of Section 2.
