Hiking is taking a long walk in the countryside, usually for pleasure or exercise. There are many hiking trails in our Country Parks, and they are all managed by the Country and Marine Parks Authority. To manage hiking trails in remote areas is an extremely demanding task, so you can help by taking your litter home after hiking. To maintain the naturalness of our countryside, we promote the use of natural materials in our trails. Most concrete footpaths to remote villages which are linked with our footpaths are managed by the Home Affairs Department.
