It stands to reason that the hiking trails within the country parks are usually the better maintained and also signposted. Despite Po Toi not being covered by a country park (or more), however, certain sections of trail are pretty well maintained and signposted -- and, as would be expected, are popular among visitors to the island.
But Po Toi's Rugged Trail definitely is more rugged than those other sections of trail -- and a route less travelled as well. Consequently, going along on it can feel like quite the adventure -- and my finally doing so giving me a nice sense of accomplishment as well as no amount of exhilaration! :)
Po Toi's a pretty rocky island on the whole
but there are indeed some parts that are
well covered with (overgrown) vegetation
Just look for the tall signposts erected at good intervals
though -- and you'll be able to find your way along the trail!
Don't get overly fixated on looking for the signposts though
-- and, instead, take time to look about you and take in
the views every once in a while along the trail!
Also have fun with your imagination when beholding
the many interesting rock formations on the island ;b
It's pretty neat too to look back up the trail and hill --
and think "wow, I was over there just X minutes ago!" ;b
I have to admit to being happy to see -- and be able
to hold on to -- the chain fencing at the steepest
sections of the well-named Rugged Trail
Not long after I took this picture, my hiking buddy and I were
speeding away from Po Toi on a vessel like the one in the photo!
I'm sure I'll be back on Po Toi before too long though as
it's such a photographer's -- along with hiker's -- delight :)
