One of Hong Kong's iconic hikes, the Dragon's Back is a pretty easy hike that takes around 2.5 to 3 hours depending where you start and which beach you finish on. The climbs are all pretty easy. I'd recommend finishing off on Shek O beach with lunch (or dinner) at the lovely Cococabana restaurant. (ps. do take plenty of water - there is nowhere to top up once you're on the trail)

Dragons Back is a must do hike in Hong Kong. The view is breathtaking. To get here, you take the Chai Wan Line To the starting point: From MTR Shau Kei Wan Station Exit A, walk to the Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus to take bus number 9 and get off on the Dragons Back stop on Shek O Road. Before you start the hike there are a couple of toilets and you wont find any along the way until the end. It takes a couple of hours and you have shorter hike options too

This hike/trail is nice but it’s seriously over rated. Get the number 9 bus from Shau Kei Wan to Tei Wan. Then the trail starts. Steps, rocks, very dangerous at points. Good views from the top but that’s it. Wear the right footwear. This hike would be extremely dangerous when it’s raining and the rocks were wet when I went and I almost slipped and broke my ankle on quite a few occasions. You can go to Big Wave Bay if you are brave enough to do some rock climbing downwards. Be careful and enjoy.

This is one of the few pleasures left to Hong Kong amidst the Coronavirus crisis, namely hiking the trails that have , thankfully, not been a magnet for crowds thus far. But monitor the situation! The views are stunning and the gradient is not too difficult.

Great walk, can be hard work in sections, quite rocky so need decent fitness to cover the whole length. Steep hills. Take plenty of water. Started trail from Shek O Road, very steep hill to begin with. Definitely recommend overall.
