Mountain Biking Wutong Mountain- Butterfly Trail

***   Add a review
#1 of 5 mountain bike trails in China
#8,320 in the world

This is one burly downhill. The mountain is 3000 feet up and the trail is rocky,
technical and steep. Plenty of rock gardens on the decent.

    Wutong Shan is now closed to cycling and for good reason. I think they are mainly trying to prevent people from pushing ride share bikes up the mountain and abandoning them or injuring themselves or others when the brakes burn out on the way back down the road. There is no appropriate trail to descend on a mountain bike. The trail mentioned here starts out from the top left end of the parking lot. At that point it is labelled both the Fenming Path and the Shenzhen hiking trail. I think the author went down the valley at the end of the paved section of the trail. That valley is now entirely stone and concrete steps. You can continue along the old fire road but it has been completely washed away in places. The washed out sections are rock so steep that a wire has been fitted to give hikers a handhold while they cross. Eventually, you reach a ridge line heading down the mountain. The top section is too steep for anyone but a professional downhill rider. The topo map makes the middle section look rideable but I never got there. On the topo, the bottom looks just as steep as the top. Save your energy and ride the proper mountain biking trails in Hong Kong. Wutong Shan is a nice place to hike but as one lady told me on the mountain, "You should leave your bike at home."

    I'd give it a higher rating but I wish it were longer. I'd have to say its defiantly worth the long climb up. Its an old trail going up the mountain used back before they had roads to the mountain.* Review edited 6/7/2011
