Geography [ edit ]

Tai Sheung Tok used to be 419m in height, but because of mining activities in the 20th century, it now has one major peak at 399m in height[1]. To the southwest lies the former Anderson Quarry. Civic construction work on the Development at Anderson Road (DAR)[2] is being finished, and another project called the Development of Anderson Road Quarry Site (ARQ)[3][4] has recently commenced at the foot of Tai Sheung Tok.

Access [ edit ]

Section 3 of the Wilson Trail runs along the north eastern side of Tai Sheung Tok, connecting Ma Yau Tong with Tseng Lan Shue. It is possible to access the summit by walking through thick bushes from the Wilson Trail or from Anderson Road.
