MacLehose Trail, Hong Kong

(110+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail
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. Work out when and for how long to visit MacLehose Trail and other Hong Kong attractions using our handy Hong Kong vacation builder.

  • This path is located in the new territories. It is about 100 km. It is divided into 8 parts, which are more or less technical than others. Overall it is easy to get to from downtown by subway and bus. Do not go alone, take what to cover and water. The path winds in the middle of the forest, and runs along the water tanks to supply fresh water to HK.
