Join LocalHood on a Guided Hike led by ForSomethingMore
What are you doing on the morning of October 13th? Did you say, you’ll be joining LocalHood for a hike up Mt. High West led by Seth and Julia from ForSomethingMore? GREAT idea :-) All the details for this hike can be found on the LocalHood Events Page!
Located in Western District, Mt. High West is a classic Kennedy Town hike. Starting right from the MTR exit, you had up nearly 2,100 steps to reach the peak of Mt. High West, and when you do you’ll feel like you’re on the top of the world! Suitable for intermediate and advanced hikers, this is not only a great place to see sweeping views of Hong Kong Island, but it’s also a great place to get in a workout! If you have a dog, and she/he can make it up all the stairs, this is a great choice for your furry friends too!
