Introduction:
The Wilson Trail makes a challenging start: Section 1 begins straight up a sheer hillside. The stepped path ascends through low shrubs, flowering with pink melastoma in spring. On each side diagonal ridgelines cut the sky, and to the right there are mountain clefts. The scattered Stanley community spreads out below, and farther off the Stanley and D’Aguilar peninsulas frame distant Beaufort Island and rugged Po Toi.

The climb is long and occasional pauses reveal ever more dramatic vistas. On still blue days the hillsides shimmer, on grey windy days they are exhilarating. The suggestion of a summit comes into sight, but instead one reaches a knoll with a view compass. Here there are fine vistas into Repulse Bay and Deep Water Bay, enclosed by the Chung Hom Kok headland. On the other side is a whaleback ridge, and beyond it steep plunging gullies. Beyond the expanse of Tai Tam Bay lie the Dragon’s Back and Mount Collinson.C

Transport Access:
Public Transport From the City Hall, Central, take Bus 6 or 6A. Two stops downhill from the Chung Hom Kok turnoff, alight at the Wilson Trail bus stop. Section 1 starts just by the bus stop.

Taxi Distance and Time Hong Kong Star Ferry to Stanley Gap Road – 12 km, about 30 minutes.

Section Start Point Section 1 starts at Stanley Gap Road, by the bus stop and Wilson Trail inaugural tablet. Go up the stone steps – and continue up. If you wish to shorten the distance and avoid the steep climb over The Twins, begin this section at Repulse Bay Gap. To reach there, go to the top of South Bay Close, off South Bay Road – and take the trail leading up by some steps.

Section End Point Hong Kong Parkview. To begin Section 2, cross the road and turn right to the Wilson Trail archway. For buses to Central, go down to Wong Nai Chung Gap.
