Wilson Trail Sections 9 & 10

The Wilson Trail stretches for 78 kilometers from Stanley on Hong Kong Island to Nam Chung on the mainland. It is named after David Wilson, who was Governor of Hong Kong from 1987 to 1992.

Finishing section eight is a tough climb to the summit of cloudy hill. From there is a little relief down to the Hok Tau Reservoir before making the climb up and over Pat Sin Leng Ridge. This is as remote as you get in Hong Kong with stunning views over to Shenzhen on one side and the Tolo Channel on the other.

Section 10 is easier as you slowly descend down to Nam Chung on the border with the Chinese mainland. This is an enchanting trail past abandoned villages, streams and thick forest.


Get to the start: We recommend starting at Tai Wo MTR and joining the trail from there.

Get home: Getting out can be tricky. First walk to the Luk Keng road where there are mini buses that pass from Sha Tau Kok to Tai Po Market. However these are infrequent and often full so we recommend on splashing out for a taxi if one passes.
