Best Fitness Trial in Hong Kong - Bowen Road
Jul 2020
Great trial for a short run. Nice and quiet with great views. Easy to get to from city centre.

A very popular route for local joggers.

Great walk, suitable for fitness as well as casual walking with family. Pretty views And FLAT!!
May 2020
Walking in Hong Kong can be daunting; due to the terrain, walks in nature often turn into hikes or uphill/downhill slogs. Sometimes you feel like that, sometimes you don't. Bowen Road stretches from Mid-Levels Central past Wanchai and Happy Valley, offering a two-hour round-trip walk that is mostly shaded, has lovely views over Hong Kong, and is FLAT, a rarity here. Highly recommend.

A fitness trail above Wanchai and Happy Valley
Mar 2020
The Bowen Road Fitness Trail is an easy trail in the Mid-Levels above Wanchai and Happy Valley that is 3km long, nicely paved with a couple interesting things to see along the way.

The trail is popular running path for residents. You'll encounter quite a few joggers and an equal number of walkers. Viewpoints are pretty good but not as impressive as what you find on the Lugard Road trail further west above Central district.

You'll find a leisure area at the Wanchai Gap Road intersection. There are a handful of shrines along the path. You'll find one of the six historic city of Victoria boundary stones as well as the Lover's Rock, a 9 metre granite monolith which is interesting to take a look at.

Overall, the Bowen Trail is sort of poor man's Lugard Road trail from a sightseeing perspective. It is a better fitness trail for those looking for a place to jog or run by comparison.

Excellent walk/run track in HK
Jan 2020
Excellent, well maintained track, great views overlooking HK sights. You can get a taxi to Bowen Rd Park and walk in from there. There are toilets about half way along the track. Whole track is quite flat and can be taken at any pace.

Easy track with views
Jul 2019
Easily accessible as it's located in Wan Chai. We started off our journey from Wan Chai Old Post Office, then to the Marriage Rock, before descending to Admiralty. The whole journey took merely 1 hour. You can get the city view while walking on the track, which is awesome.

Fitness track with views
Dec 2018 • Couples
High above the streets and tall buildings of Wan Chai is the three kilometre long Bowen Road Fitness Track, we reached it after climbing roughly 480 stairs from Stubbs Road down near Stubbs Road Childrens Playground. The climb is short and steep up the side of the mountain arriving around the mid-point of the track. The path is wide, sealed and shady, offering sneak peeks over Wan Chai, with plenty of signage along the level pathway, an emergency call point for those in need, toilet facilities and a wonderful fun attraction to visit, the Bowen Road Lover's stone garden and monumental red Lover's Rock after climbing 168 steps. Definitely a place to find if you are looking for something a bit different, energetic and away from the crowds.

Easy stroll for all ages
Dec 2018 • Couples
A relatively flat (some downhill portions) and safe paved trail from Happy Valley to Wanchai and beyond. Suitable for all.

Wow, I loved this. My favourite thing to do.
Dec 2018 • Solo
Been in Hong Kong many times and lived there twice for 6 months each time but no one ever told me about this. My favourite thing to do in Hong Kong now.

My route from Central was as follows:
Up the mid levels escalator, short cut through the historic police station, into the botanic gardens heading east and up, cross the pedestrian bridge then left onto McDonnell? street. Head up the steps following the peak tram line for a few minutes then left when you come up onto the magazine gap road bridge and follow the road til you get to Bowen Road. Walk to end and turn around. Did the same in reverse but didn't take escalators, came down Elgin Street which was fun. 3 hours round trip.

Enjoy.

An oasis of calm
Nov 2018 • Business
Had heard about the trail, and it exceeded expectations
Staying in centre of Wan Chai was only a 15-20 minute uphill walk to the trail.

Nice views, and car free, was a flat 6k run, half way up to the peak, partly in morning shade, great to see people of all ages jogging and running.
And in Wan Chai Park saw many locals limbering up for the day doing stretching and Tai Chi, very atmospheric.

Worth the effort to escape the manic aspect of HK

Lovely afternoon stroll
Oct 2018 • Family
The weather was perfect for this lovely afternoon stroll. It was almost flat which was a bonus. There were great views.
The steep drops were no problem with safety guard rails
