Details :

This historical hike will set off from the former Taikoo Sugar Refinery (now demolished) at Quarry bay and up the valley to the former Taikoo Sanitarium at Quarry Pass through the “Aerial Ropeway” (ropeway being another name for ‘cable car’).  Along this old route, you will see the remaining concrete supports for the cable system, such as the memorial “Saddle Base”, but the steel structural frame for the “rope” had vanished.  When reaching the top at Quarry Pass, you will find the foundation of the Sanitarium which suggests a resemblance of the Maya culture.  Besides learning some history, it is most important that you can enhance your health by doing more exercise and being close to nature through this outreach event.
