The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished at my hotel in Wan Chai, near the corner of Wan Chai Road and Burrows Street (Google Map Directions). You can access the eastern end of the Hong Kong Trail via the bus stop on Stubbs Road (Google Map Directions). To access the western end, you will either need to walk up Peel Rise (like I did) or continue to Section 2 and take the bus from Tin Wan (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 16.4km (10.2mi) in 7hr (I spent some time at Luggard Road taking a time-lapse)
  • Grade: Medium. The Hong Kong Trail itself is rather easy as it is flat and about 7km long. Walking up the Wan Chai Green Trail and Peel Rise is a different story though (the path is wide and paved but it is definitely at an incline).
  • Date Walked: 11th of December 2015

The Story

I decree Section 3 of the Hong Kong Trail to be my least favourite. At least I saw a wild pig, got a sweat-up getting there and stood in awe of the big city lights from Lugard Road.

Pleasant Trails,


Did you enjoy a walk or hike on metrotrekker?

Do you visit metrotrekker regularly to find inspiration for exploration in your city or a city you plan to visit?

Is the metrotrekker website quick to load, easy to navigate and without intrusive advertisements and a hard sell mentality?

If so, please show your support and contribute so I can continue to provide more walking and hiking information without the intrusive advertisements and third-party tracking typical of the internet. Also, I'm a terrible salesman so you won't find any product placement or recommendations on metrotrekker. I just want to keep it simple with good information to help you explore the worlds great metropolitan areas by foot and public transport.

Unfortunately, hosting a secure and reliable website isn't free (and don't get me started about the software and travel costs!) so if I could recoup some of the cost I would be more than delighted.

To recoup some of the costs, metrotrekker uses a Pay What You Want (PWYW) model via the secure and reputable PayPal. Just click on the link below to be directed to my PayPal.Me metrotrekker account where you can PWYW via your secure PayPal account.

Thank you for your contribution. It is greatly appreciated.
