Hong Kong Trail Stage 3 starts above Aberdeen, at the end of Hong Kong Trail Stage 2. It is 6.5km long and is quite a pleasant hike, when compared to the concrete trail of Stage 2.

Hong Kong Trail Stage 3 brings you closer to nature. Unpaved Trails means happy hiking on predominantly flat paths.

Start: End of Hong Kong Trail Stage 2
Distance: 6.5km
Difficulty: Easy
End: Hong Kong Trail Stage 4

Getting to the Trail Head

Hike Hong Kong Trail Stage 2
Bus to Tin Wan Estate (from Aberdeen Bus Terminal) and walk up the hill to the end of Hong Kong Trail Stage 2.

We start to see more wildlife from this point on since there are less people hiking this section of the trail because it is a little more difficult to get to, and because there is less concrete. Enjoy kilometers of unpaved trail.

First off, here is a map of the mobile network coverage of Hong Kong Trail Stage 3. Take note of telephone booth locations and poor network coverage areas just in case you or one of your team members should have an accident. It is also useful to note the distance marker points so that if you do have an accident, that you can quote the nearest distance post.

I love water near the hiking trails. Often I'll go out hiking intentionally in the rain.

Often I’ll go out hiking intentionally in the rain. And where there is water, there is also usually lots of wildlife to be seen.

This is Aberdeen Reservoir Road. Take a left here, heading up the hill to get to Wan Chai Gap as an exit point, otherwise continue onto Hong Kong Trail Stage 4 which is just over the bridge on the right hand side.
