7 Short Hikes With The Best Views In Hong Kong

Hikes With Kids Under 2 Hours

It’s time to venture into the great outdoors for some sunshine and crisp air. Little Steps has hit the trails for hiking season! So far, we have stumbled upon beaches and ferry rides for the kids, and a famous seafood restaurant to relax and refuel. So strap those boots on and let’s get walking!

  • THE MORNING TRAIL

    If you live in Mid-levels, this trail is right in your backyard. Start your jaunt at the end of Conduit Road and stroll up Hatton Road onto the trail directly above the Police Station. Continue uphill for about 45 minutes until you reach Harlech Road. Stay to the right and you will end up at The Peak Galleria after about 20 minutes.

    Moderate to Steep (1-1.5 hours)

    Yes, and it is mostly shaded.

    Finish your hike at one of our favorite spots, The Peak Lookout, which is both prams- and dog-friendly. Enjoy a post-hike drink, grub, and an amazing view.

  • THE PEAK

    Start your day with a cruise up the Peak Tram or take a taxi to The Peak Galleria. Choose the flat path around the Peak on Luggard or Harlech Road (approx. 4.6km), or take Mount Austin Road uphill toward Victoria Gardens. Allow time for post-stroll shopping, eating or drinking at The Peak Galleria.

    Easy (45 minutes)

    Yes and seriously flat.

    Phenomenal views of Hong Kong and fresher air for both you and your babe.

  • BOWEN ROAD

    Already a favorite among many Hong Kongers, Bowen Road is an excellent choice for when you are craving a break from the bustling city street. It is also the ideal spot to break out the jogging stroller that has been collecting dust since your baby shower. Tell the taxi to drop you off at Bowen Road (off Garden Road) to start your walk. One-way: 4.2km. Round-trip: 8.4km.

    Easy (15 minutes to 1.5 hours)

    Yes and a great meeting place for mums or dads looking to walk, run or stroll together.

    Easy access from anywhere in Hong Kong.

  • TAI TAM COUNTRY PARK

    Strolling south? Start this walk at the entrance of Hong Kong Parkview where the Wilson and Hong Kong trails begin. Many parents like to walk or stroll around the park, but you can get more adventurous if your kids are up for it by heading towards Tai Tam Reservoir.

    Easy to Moderate (25 minutes – 1 hour)

    Yes and plenty of stimulation.

    Bring a barbeque or picnic. There are plenty of great spots here!

  • LAMMA ISLAND

    For more island fun with the fam, hop on a ferry and head to Lamma Island (Yung Shue Wan) from Central. Grab lunch and watch the kids be amazed by the live seafood. Stroll to Hung Shing Yeh Beach and keep rolling down the path to Sok Kwu Wan, where you can grab more seafood snacks and take a ferry back to Central.

    Moderate (1 – 2 hours)

    Yes

    Excellent views and delicious seafood. Kids love the ferry ride to Lamma!

  • POKFULAM RESERVOIR

    Start your journey at Hong Kong Jockey Club Riding School in Pokfulam. Once you have reached the Reservoir, head toward The Peak by following the Hong Kong Trail on the left or the Peak Trail on the right. For extra thrills, take the Peak Tram down and call it a day!

    Moderate (1-1.5 hours)

    Yes

    There are plenty of other side trails in Pokfulam. Your family will never get bored exploring.

  • SAI KUNG COUNTRY PARK

    There are a few ways to get to Sai Wan and Tai Long Wan. Fast Route: Take a taxi to Wong Shek Pier in Sai Kung Country Park, and then ride a sampan directly to the beach. The boat ride is fun for kids! Pram Strolling and Hiking Route: Take a taxi to the Sai Wan Pavillion (you might need to change to a New Territories taxi in Sai Kung Town). Walk along High Island Reservoir all the way to Sai Wan.

    Moderate (1 - 1.5 hours)

    Yes - surprisingly!

    The beaches are simply amazing and by far the best in Hong Kong! Older kids will love camping here as well.
