The mountains behind Linguang Station (MRT Brown Line). The climb is relatively easy and short, and you can go quite a long distance across the top of the range with minimal up and down. There are two ways up, one is a combination paved surface and steps which begins about 800m SWW of the MRT station off the main street that is not Hoping East Road, and the other is a steep wooded dirt incline that is trickier to find through a little park off one of the alleys behind McDonald's.

Once you make the short ascent, the trail is mainly dirt, and quite pleasant.

That's Fuyang Eco Park. Yes, great place to go hiking, but I would think twice about jogging there unless you're willing to risk spraining an ankle.

Wow I haven't been there in a couple of years, had no idea they did some next level shit up there. Anyways, if you head towards Muzha once you get past the first part, do the second short climb and there are a lot more dirt trails that take you everywhere.

Boris Becker used to run in the hills to strengthen his ankles.

I guess no answer means they don't exist. :cry:
