The Hong Kong Trail is a 50 kilometre
walking route which passes through the five country parks
on Hong Kong island.
The trail is divided into eight sections
which provide a variety of walks of different lengths
and character. Rather than try to complete them all at
once you may wish to plan a series of leisurely walks
to appreciate the scenery along the trail. Please note
that there are no camp sites along the trail and you
are advised to leave the trail with sufficient time to
reach home before nightfall.
To help you to plan your walking,
you may take reference of the degree of difficulty in
terms of length, gradient and ruggedness and explains
where you can reach or leave the trail by public transport.
There are also waymarks
and information boards along the trail. You may walk
the trail from west to east or vice versa; the information
presented here follows a west to east direction. It is
hoped that the walks will provide for many interests;
for example, there is unlimited scope for the photographer,
for the naturalist and geographer, and for the historian
to discover remnants of Hong Kong's history.
Further information of Hong Kong Trail can be found in the book "The Peak" and "Country Map".
