Hong Kong Trail is 50 km long and passes through five country parks on Hong Kong Island. The trail has eight sections, but some of them are good to do together with other sections.

You will start by the Peak Tower on Victoria Peak and end at Big Wave Bay. This trail is extremely popular with local residents for it’s unique combination and it has very well-marked paths. Along the way, it offers full views around Hong Kong Island and amazing scenery over reservoirs as well as an opportunity to discover the historical remnants. You will also pass some nice waterfalls, Jardine’s Lookout, Mount Butler, Tai Tam Reservoir and Dragon’s Back
