Hiking the Hong Kong Trail Section 6

Hong Kong, China

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: No public transport at the start of the trail near Mount Butler. Best to combine with Section 5 of the trail or walk from Quarry Bay (Google Map Directions). Bus stop at the end of the trail on Tai Tam Road near the Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 5km (3.1mi) in about 1.5hr
  • Grade: Easy to Hard depending on direction. Downhill from Mount Butler and obviously uphill the other way. Flat sections near Tai Tam Reservoir at the end of the trail.
  • Date Walked: 16th of December 2015

The Story

Like the water that fills the Tai Tam Reservoir, downhill I go in the path of least resistance.

Hello, I'm Marc and welcome to metrotrekker.

Be it seeing the city sights, exploring parklands and gardens, urban walks or day-hikes in the city outskirts, the metrotrekker website details walking routes and hiking trails accessible by foot and public transport in metropolitan areas.

The metrotrekker website provides you with all the details required for metropolitan exploration:

  • photos/videos
  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
