Well signposted route. Crosses a few roads and just look around for the signs. Some parts are steps some is quite steep but it's relatively short and the top half is very pretty. You can reward yourself at Pacific Coffee with its great views.

I always perform uphill practice for endurance training. Start location roughly located at The University of Hong Kong Kotewall Road access and ascent thu Hatton Road. At Hatton Road you will see many local people doing same exercise as me. Don't hesitate to ask anyone for direction. Most of them can communicate in English to tell you the direction to... More

Easy to get lost as others say. Nice views and a completely different environment that lets you forget you are in an urban jungle.

If you want to get to Victoria Peak, but don't want to do the touristy tram, then hike up. One way is this trail. However, as others have pointed out, signage is poor. I didn't see my first sign until Station 10 - and from what I could see, there are 14 of them. And it's not clear from Station... More

If you are young, completely fit and healthy, and used to taking long uphill hikes then maybe this will be an easy hike for you. But don't be mistaken into thinking that this trails easy by couch potato standards. This is a 3km+ uphill battle along very very steep (albeit, paved) ramps and stairs. Add to this the humidity and... More

My husband and I were thinking of going to the peak, however we wanted to beat the crowd. Thank God we found the starting point of this trail which is just a few steps from the tram's ticketing centre. It took us about an hour to reach. It could be quite tiring if you're unfit. I love the quietness of... More

It's much more rewarding to hike up to the peak than to wait in an endless queue for a tram. The only drawback is that the signage is horrible. You'll need a really good map, as this trail alternates between sidewalks and steps. Oh, yeah, and you won't save any money. Once you're at the Peak, you have to pay... More

I did this walk on the last day of my stay in Hong Kong and just wanted to get some decent exercise and fresh air before catching my flight. I found the walk by accident as the trail isnt well advertised . It starts behind the building where you catch the Peak Tram to the left of the Tram track.... More

I walked up with friend and her two-month old from the second peak tram station to the peak yesterday. We started walking along "Tram path way" and when reached the end we followed some hikers going up a short slope and soon found ourselves in Central Green trail. It's a easy trail with mild slope. Most of the trail was... More

This is a green side of Hong Kong that many visitors don't know about. One can walk up or down the hills, traversing the Central/Mid-Level districts and the Peak tourist areas. I also recommend the trails going around the Peak in one big circle. All the the trails are well marked and paved; and the views are spectacular, overlooking the... More
