A wonderful trail that takes you to the summit of Tai Mo Shan. Tai Mo Shan is the highest peak in Hong Kong and makes this trail a High traffic area. Locals are friendly and most speak a little bit of English. I would rate this trail easy and achievable by beginners as long as they set a pace and don't turn back. The views are wonderful and inspirational! This trail will be unforgettable! Enjoy!

Excellent views of both sides of the island. There are quite a few steps, particularly at least he start and end, but generally easy to moderate walking and very well marked. Big Wave Bay is an interesting finishing point

Great trail for a weekday afternoon; but crazy busy at the weekend.

Wow this is 1 in a million hike. Not hard, very very hard and will test you with all the stairs but worth it on a clear day & I would do it again once I regain my strength. Amazing HK!

I was very much looking forward to this hike as I have always wanted to get that view of Hong Kong and Kowloon from this angle. Unfortunately for me the weather was not the best and it was “pea soup” at the top! The trail starts off very urban and quickly ascends into some classic HK steps and a lot of them! The trail gets quite steep when you get into the greenery and it does require some hand grabs at the stones above to get the next step. I shall certainly look to do this again when I am in HK and hope for better weather next time.

Nice walk with great views. Went on a Saturday and was quite busy. Would recommend the high junk peak track over this one for views and lack of people.

If you start from Kadoorie Farm it feels like never ending stairs. The views are quite lovely along the ridge but eventually the numerous peaks and valleys become annoying and you just want it to end.

Really great view of the HK skyline. You can walk up and explore outside of the Peak structure on to the mountain, or you can straight up to the Sky Terrace for the view.

Great walk on quiet paths, would be slippery if raining. Great views. On arriving at the end ( Clearwater bay and golf course ) there’s a sweet little fishing village where we ventured for some food, Would not recommend! Rather inedible chicken dish and a soup of dishwater ( and 400$ too boot for 3 of us with no alcohol!) ! As I’ve found in Hong Kong food is an adventure and a bit hit and miss! Head back to the city for good food.

One of the very best hikes in Hong Kong. A solid 4 hours and quite a climb, but the trail. the scenery and the views are exceptional.

Decidedly more difficult than expected. Once you start the decent into Discovery Bay, the path is very, very steep and with a bit of rain, could be very slippery. We saw one person crawling down on their bum, while we also saw someone with their dog run down. So I would say go slowly unless you are very familiar with the trail. Otherwise, very pleasant walk if you have 3-4 hours!

Great views and a perfect introduction to HK if you just got here or are visiting. You can keep going to big wave bay for a dip after the hike. However, if you are looking for a challenge, that is definitely not be the right hike.

Great hike, good views, bring a swim suit. A dip in the bay is an amazing way to cool off after the hike. There is a designated changing area. If not in a hurry to get to Big Wave Bay I would suggest not taking the first path to the beach. Instead of taking the first path to the “right” continue on and in another 10 mins or so is another path that will take you to the beach. More great views and it leads to 3000 year old (allegedly) rock carvings.

The trail is amazing and provides beautiful views over the open sea to the east and island views to the west. At the end of the trail, walk down to and visit the village of Shek-O and have a meal at the restaurant close to the beach. The trail is not strenuous and can easily be completed with normal fitness in a couple of hours.

Métro from Hong Kong, with small bus ride. Well worth it, bring water lots of sun exposure. Nice views. From the end, go down to the beach and grab the bus back. Nice one day activity out of the city and the chaos of Hong Kong.
