The MacLehose Trail is the oldest trail in Hong Kong, 100km long with 200 distance posts. It is named after Sir Murray MacLehose, the 25th Governor of Hong Kong, an enthusiastic hiker who established the Country Parks.
The trail begins in Pak Tam Chung in Sai Kung Country Park, and ends in Tuen Mun in Tai Lam Country Park. It will take you from the east to the west in the New Territories. You will climb up to many hills and peaks, even Hong Kong’s highest mountain Tai Mo Shan!
This is the most varied countryside hike, and it is an amazing trail. It has been named one of the best hikes in the world by the National Geographic Society.
Along the trail, there are many stunning views over the indented coastlines, the peculiar rocks, the sunrise and sunset, and the grand rolling hills.
