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.
