We were at Stanley for staycation when we decided to go for the Rhino Rock Trail. It is a short but definitely adventurous hike. To get to the starting point which is located at Stanley Fort, we took the easy way, hop on a cab from Stanley market.
Once arrived at the Stanley Fort, look for the stairs next to the military gate. Climb up the stairs then follow the trails to Che Pau Teng, which would be the highest point (177m) of your hike. Bear in mind it’s quite a moderate amount of climbing uphill at the beginning, and then it’s all descending. My kids said the hardest part of this trail is definitely these stairs 😂 .
Which way to go next when you’re at Che Pau Teng? It’s the bushes on the right with entry point marked by ribbons. Then, things got interesting! Bushes brought us out to the other side of the hill, and there isn’t much points for recognition, the tracks are slippery too. So, be extra careful and pay attention to the ribbons.
There are different points to stop and admire the view. Stanley prison is right next to us with Tai Tam Bay at front, opposite is the country park where Dragon’s Back and Cape D’Aguilar trails located.
You know you are close to the Rhino when you are at these massive rocks area where you have to climb up and down, cutting through it. Soon after the rocks, you should be able to see the Rhino Rock on your left.
If you do plan on climbing up to the Rhino, just be careful, it’s a bit tricky going up and down.
Then, just return the same way you came , climbing back is way easier and faster.
