Hong Kong Walking Trails

The MacLehose trails cover over 100km, venturing through a variety of sceneries from picturesque coastal views, through paved villages, country park terrain or challenging mountain peaks.

There are trails for all levels of fitness, however, maps, planning in advanced and plenty of water is recommended. Dragon’s Back is one of the more popular trails among the thirteen Hong Kong Island trails. While these Hong Kong trails seem close to civilization, you can easily become lost; maps and water are highly recommended.
