The Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail (the Trail) is the second of its kind established in the New Territories by the government. Inaugurated on 4 December 1999, the 2.6 km Trail links up the built heritage sites and situates them within easy walking distance of each other. The Trail provides an opportunity to learn more about traditional life in the area of Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling in a convenient half-day excursion.
The idea of setting up a heritage trail was initiated by the Antiquities Advisory Board. With the full support of local residents, the North District Council, the Architectural Services Department, the North District Office, the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust and the Hong Kong Tourism Board, it was brought to fruition after several years of preparation by the Antiquities and Monuments Office.
