Quarry Bay/North Point to Stanley, Hong Kong

Stanley, Hong Kong
7.9 miles
Half-day, fairly strenuous hike from near Quarry Bay MTR to Stanley.  For some reason the GPS shows me doing it in less time than it actually took.  My time was about 4.5 hours at a moderate to brisk pace, with a few short breaks. It's up-and-down 6 seperate peaks (Siu Ma Shan, Mt. Butler, Jardine's Lookout, Violet Hill, and the Twins).  Lot's of stair climbing.  Nothing technical.   Mix of pavement and...

Chai Wan to Tai Tam Tuk via Hong Kong Trail

Hong Kong
8.2 miles
A good hike from Chai Wan to Tai Tam Tuk reservoir.  This hike is essentially stages 7 & 8 of the Hong Kong trail, but in reverse.  Highlights include walking the Dragon's Back which has some amazing views of the Shek-O and Big Wave Bay areas.  The last part is very flat as you follow a catch water to the reservoir.  However, it does provide some great views of the harbor and I did encounter quite a...

Hike from North Point to Stanley
by asaikar on Mar 16, 2007
Wang Hang, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong
6.6 miles
This is another one of Hong Kong Island's classic trails. Great for hiking and trail running. The trail goes all the way from North Point / Quarry Bay through TaiTam Reservoir / Country Park to Stanley. It should take about 3 hours. This hike is a great way to experience the many different faces of Hong Kong Island.
Trail around Hong Kong Island
by asaikar on Apr 14, 2007
Jardines Lookout, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong
27 miles
This is the main trail around Hong Kong Island. You can either do it at once (a very, very long day) or hike / run sections of it. The views on the City and the Ocean are quite stunning.

Have lived in Hong Kong for 29 years. Some really great walks on Lantau Island and for serious bikers the Maclehose Trail is a 100 km cracker.
