Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed

Rocky, scenic outcrop.

Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed is one of my personal favorites in Hong Kong, and on Hong Kong Island. It is short, offers some great views, and has various wildlife to see along the way. The paths are mostly unpaved and the geological formations keep things interesting.

Getting to the start of Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed is a lot easier than starting it the right way around. Get off at Tai Koo MTR Exit B, turn left onto King’s Road, then take the next left onto Grieg Road and walk to the top and veer right onto the start of Quarry Bay Tree Walk. Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed starts about 300 meters up this path, on the left hand side.

How to Get to the Trail Head

Walk 500 meters up Grieg Road and Quarry Bay Tree Walk from Tai Koo MTR exit B

Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed offers great views of Quarry Bay and features unpaved hiking trails.

Hong Pak Country Trail Reversed ends in the middle of nowhere! You have several options. It is about a 1.5km walk down Mount Parker Road to Kings Road in Quarry Bay, or you could return on Hong Pak Country Trail, or continue onto Quarry Bay Jogging Trail.

First off, here is a map of the mobile network coverage of Hong Pak Country Trail. 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.
