The course was not too bad, not really maintained as famous trails, but still fine to walk with clear signs. A bit worried with the up and down courses before I go, but it was not too bad,,, Someone mentioned 3 liters of water, but I found it really depends on the weather,,, 2 liters were enough in cloudy day,, but surely 3 liters in hot day

its a very easy and walkable hike compared to other hikes. Mostly roads and last bit nature. this made the last part very nice. you can also add this last bit when doing section 7. the underground tunnels were pretty cool

This is very easy. Least spectacular section and more of a necessity to complete Maclehose

You cannot exit stage 9. You need to walk an extra 45min-1hour to get a taxi or bus. We hiked to Sham Keng.

Long but pretty good hike. Was crowded on Sunday. If I do this hike again, I’ll start at the second section. The first section is basically just walking a road with many cars passing by going to the East Dam and the end of section one of MacLehose Trail. Bring a towel and flip flops so you can jump in the ocean and refresh.

This is actually stage 3 and walked in the reverse direction. Still a great hike but not to be confused with stage 4 which starts from the same point but goes in the opposite direction towards Ma On Shan and Fei Ngo Shan. Stage 4 is approx 12 km but ends at Gilwell Camp and requires another 2 to 3 km down either the Wilson trail or road to reach civilisation. Take plenty of water, I use 3 litres and run out.

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!

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.
