Many people regard Hong Kong as a ‘concrete jungle’. But that is a wrong impression! More than 40% of the total land area has been set aside in 24 Country Parks.
Hong Kong is a delight for hikers. From strolls to challenging hikes to heights of almost 1000 metres you can find anything here.
This app introduces the most common hikes on Hong Kong, country trails on Lantau Island, in the New Territories and on the Outlying Islands.
For each hike you can find route locations, route maps and elevation profiles.
You can always search for different grades as well as for different regions.
The app describes every route, including its length, hiking time, level of difficulty and gives the emergency hotlines of every country park.
Detailed information of public transport from and to Central is given for every hike.
A helpful detail: you do not need to be online during a hike!
But you can when using the Locate Me button to see where you are.
Updates of transportations and new trails added.

Very limited information on the hike itself
This app conveniently lists many hikes in Hong Kong, the New Territories and surrounding islands but this information should only be used as a starting point. Hikes are listed in a variety of ways including difficulty, length and area but the descriptions are very limited and you won’t be able to use this app to either find the trailhead or get a comprehensive hike description. My advice is use this app as a starting point to research hikes in the area and then use other means to look up the hike you are interested in doing to obtain better information.
Terrible app! It lists only 8 trails on Hong Kong island and fails to mention the better known trails on the Southside like Dragon's Back, the Twins, Violet Hill, etc... Totally not worth the $$!
