It's very easy to reach the starting point using the MTR and public buses. From the top you can view the beautiful beaches( Shek O and Big Wave). You have sign posts along the way to guide you. There are two options for the hike....More
One of the most basic trail for those who want to try out hiking in HK. It is rocky and steep along the trail but the route pretty much is straight forward. We went on a weekdays so it is not crowded. Pretty accessible too....More
With beautiful coastal scenery and a short train/bus ride from the bustle of the city, the Dragon’s Back is one of the best urban hikes in Asia. Dragon’s Back starts at Shek O Road and continues to the breath-taking vista at Shek O Peninsula and...More
Let’s head away from city life and head to the mountains for a 8,5 km hike. 2 trains and a bus about an hour journey to get there. Dragons back mountain being my first official Hike into the mountains and it was phenomenal and took...More
Great hike, about easy to medium difficulty. I went on a Sunday which was a mistake. Go on a weekday so there’s less people. Pack water and a snack. There are picnic areas if you’re interested. Just follow the signs and you’ll be fine. It’s...More
My wife and I did this hike in late March 2019. Lots of directions, even with pictures, online. We took the MTR to Chai Wan and walked from there. It was about 10-15 minutes to get to the cemetary where there were a billion steps...More
Beautiful views and very well signaled. We did approximately 3 hours from Shek O road and Cape Collison to Shek O beach (so we did it backwards). It is very hot and humid so be prepared with a lot of water. Also there are spiders,...More
Took the whole day to hike we enjoyed the beach at the end. Slightly hard to leave the place after the hike but definitely worth it! Feels unreal to be in hong kong island and still out on the forest..
It's interesting to hike along the shore line. It's also easier to go from downtown area to this hidden getaway by public transport (shuttle). Unfortunately, there were too many people on the trail and we were going at different speed. So I had to stop...More

Hi Royalpea, if you are comfortable carrying your child and have practiced on other hikes i would say ok, but i am not an expert in that department. It is a real hike on uneven dirt tracks not on a paved path. We had daypacks and umbrellas. It took us a few hours and there were a couple of resting spots, but not sheltered and only one porta loo at the beginning, then again just before we took the path down to the beach. There were toilets and showers down at the beach. Hope this helps alittle.
It depends on your tolerance for wind & cold. I think Jan could be on the cooler side, and when you're up on the peak, you're pretty much exposed to the elements. If you're only up there for a couple of minutes, then it... More
It depends on your tolerance for wind & cold. I think Jan could be on the cooler side, and when you're up on the peak, you're pretty much exposed to the elements. If you're only up there for a couple of minutes, then it could be fine. But if you plan to stay there to enjoy the view, take lots of photographs, etc, then it might make sense to wear long pants.
