Always a great easy flat hike. Not much shade - but some parts shade from trees

A really nice hike across the island and around. The first 4 or 5k is fairly trafficked but once you hit the loop it gets much more remote and beautiful. I set off at about 2pm and it took about 5 hours to do the whole walk, mostly due to stopping for the photo opportunities. The light changes so much at this time that the scenery you see on the way there differes on the way back. At a moderate level, it's not too taxing on the legs, a couple of inclines but they don't last too long. Would highly recommend it.

Don’t start from the cemetery near Chai Wan. It seemed much more enjoyable and cooler for people starting from To Tei Wan and ending at Big Wave Bay. Definitely go to Shek O after.

good trek. level = easy.

One of my favorite hikes of all time because of the views alone. But it was also very non technical, and I had the trail to myself on an October Saturday. Be mindful of the bus schedule!

nice trail with tons of views, village and beach. paved and well marked

beautiful hike with tons of views. it's a little intense in the heat but almost half of the trail is in the shade once you get past the peak. the bay was a nice reward and beautiful as well. highly recommended.

Well marked easy to moderate trail with spectacular harbour views early on. The second half was a very calm walk through the forest. Went in the rain and very few points of shelter along the path

The trail is fairly easy. I hiked in August 2018. Go early as only portions of it have coverage. Mostly stores on the ascend, once up there your walk Swift rolling little hills, nothing to hard. Really great views of HK’s gold cost and just angle after angle of ocean and terrain views. What a great morning ending in the little beach village where you will find great/cheap food and the short bus back to the subway.

A nice trek in the morning with a range of scenery to walk through and see. First 3rd felt like the most challenging but would agree with a moderate rating.

This is a very busy trail that is close to the city and easily accessible. It is primarily used for leisure walks and a lot of joggers and runners. It is wide and flat and offers some good views of the city. It has some nice places to stop and check out, too, like a park and “Lovers Rock”. Please note, bicycles are prohibited on this trail! You will see some people riding bikes here, often children, but it is clearly posted that bikes are not allowed. It is too crowded and is very dangerous to the runners using this winding trail for anyone to be biking here.

A solid trail that is maintained and had great views!

With the exception of intense crowding on weekends, this trail was really high quality. Well-travelled and marked enough that a new hiker could navigate it well, but if taken at speed and hustling up the hills there and back can be a really great workout. Do be wary of the hordes of trail runners on nice weekend days, get out on a weekday if you can.

I would recommend this trail to anyone who wants a fairly simple non technical trail with amazing views. The first part of this trail I got dropped off by the bus in the wrong place and went slightly off the main trail but otherwise the first several K is paving and towards the end it’s a little more rocky. Beautiful beach towards the later end.

Great hike. But moderate rating is a stretch. More moderate to challenging.

Great view! mix mountain and ocean views, beautiful trail inside a busy island like Hong Kong!

Very nice trail, only 15 out of bustling Hong Kong, easy track and clearly marked, awesome morning views of the South China Sea

Incredible views of beaches, Tai Tam Bay, and the ridge. Extremely close to the MTR, only a half hour walk uphill. Steep hills along the water are an incredibly dramatic site. However, the Saturday morning crowd made the physical activity a bit stressful due to poor trail etiquette: folks were walking while on their phones with their heads down, some stopped right in the middle of the trail for their snack or lunch, numerous people were playing loud music from pocket speakers..

Trail is good for a casual hike with a few amazing views of some villages and some islands/hills. Based on the GPS it isn’t a 8/9 km hike from the starting point but a 4-5 km ish trail if you follow the path.
