The Maclehose trail is the longest marked trail in Hong Kong: a 100-kilometre trail that stretches across the New Territories from east to west. It goes through all kinds of environments: remote reservoirs, quiet beaches, inside forests, overlooking cities, and over open mountains and hills. Comprising ten unevenly divided sections, it’s more like different town parks strung together to make a continuous 100-kilometre trail. So you’ll sometimes encounter local Hongkongers of all ages on their daily walk or cycle on the sections closer to towns. There are many official camping grounds along the trail, some with more amenities like running water, toilets, barbecue pits, and bins.
My brother and I hiked this trail from 15-20 November 2018.
