MacLehose Trail, Hong Kong

4.6
#3 of 20 in Trails in Hong Kong
An excellent antidote to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, wind through valleys, rugged peaks, and pristine ocean coastlines on your hike along MacLehose Trail. Spanning a total of 100 km (62 mi), this is not a trail to complete in one day: choose one of the smaller, more manageable sections. Please be aware that not all parts of the trail have public transport, so research your chosen route well, and pack lots of water and food.

  • The most challenging and beautiful hiking trail in Hong Kong which covers 100 kilometers from the far ends of New Territories East to West. The design is very flexible that you can complete the trails in more than one go. The whole trail is divided into ten sections with various level of difficulties. There are many intersection points which are easily accessible by public transportation. When enjoy hiking, please be reminded for environmental friendly and don't leave any trash along the trail. There are rubbish collection points at the intersections points of every sections.
  • Great hiking trail with a few eateries along the stop point. Able to see some remaining villages in Hong Kong
  • The Maclehose trail, named after governor Maclehose has many sections. They vary in difficulty, but are all wonderful hikes.
  • Very nice easy trail. Clean and beautiful.
  • Different sections have different degrees of difficulty. A good route to follow.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
