Lead Mine Pass – The intersection of trails
鉛礦坳 Lead Mine Pass
鉛礦坳(Lead Mine Pass)相傳二十世紀初這裡曾是鉛礦，因而得名。如今附近一帶仍保留著廢棄礦洞，部分更有逾百年歷史，但因日久失修，存在結構及衛生問題，大家請勿冒險探洞。
The Lead Mine Pass is said to have been a lead mine in the early 20th century, that’s where its name came from.Today,
there are still abandoned mines in the vicinity, some of which are more than
100 years old. However, due to disrepair, they all have structural
and sanitary problems, please do not take any risks to explore the caves.
