MacLehose Trail Sections 5 & 6

Named after Murray MacLehose, the former Governor of Hong Kong, the MacLehose Trail is a popular destination for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, and offers a chance to experience the natural beauty and cultural diversity of Hong Kong.

These two sections are your reward for the long march of the previous two. Section five takes you along the Kowloon ridge just behind Lion Rock with amazing views over the city below.

Section six is the shortest and by far the easiest as it follows a road through the Dam Shan Country Park up to the Shing Mun Reservoir.


Get to the start: Take the MTR to Wong Tai Sin (exit A), take green minibus no 18, and get off at the terminus on Sha Tin Pass Rd. Walk up to the yellow-roofed monastery and then follow the minor road all the way up to Sha Tin Pass. Or take a taxi to the café on the Sha Tin Pass.

Get home: Walk from the finish to Pineapple Dam where you will find mini buses and taxis back to Tsuen Wan MTR station.
