A Hike from Wan Chai to The Peak via the Hong Kong Trail, Hong Kong, China
11th of December 2015
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.
- Location: Wan Chai, The Mid-Levels and The Peak, Hong Kong, China
- Start or End: I started and finished at my hotel in Wan Chai (near the corner of Wan Chai Road and Burrows Street). You can access the eastern end of the Hong Kong Trail via the bus stop on Stubbs Road. To access the western end, you will either need to walk up Peel Rise (like I did) or continue on to Section 2 and take the bus from Tin Wan.
- Length: 16.4km (10.2mi)
- 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).
