The hike takes about 1-1,5 hours up and like 30-40 min down. It's reachable by mtr and the first kilometer or so is just a concrete road uphill, which is quite boring, but then you reach some stairs and you're on the right track. The...More

I was a Hong Kong resident during my grade school and high school years. That was before the Lion Rock tunnel was built. I hiked a trail up the Lion Rock from Kowloon Tong and then down the trail to Sha Tin with friends a few times. And I enjoyed every trip. I still remember the aroma of the deep fried shrimp cakes I ate in Sha Tin. It took us approximately 2.5 hours for each trip. Is the Kowloon Tong hiking trail still used by hikers? Is it well maintained and safe to use? If you know the hiking trail starting from Kowloon Tong please give me the directions. ST

I am planning a trip to Hong Kong and would love to take the Lion Rock trails up from Wong Tai Sin and then down the trail to Shatin. Are the trials busy on Sunday? Are the trials isolated on weekdays? Any security/safety concerns? Regards. Arthur

I think there will be people around, except rainy days. In the case of rain, beware the trial may be slippery... or best, only hike when the weather is not a big concern. Lion rock is not a beginner route, so some... More
