Connecting known routes, small paths and lost trails, the Hong Kong Island Coastal Trail is a community-created walking route circumnavigating Hong Kong Island’s coastline. The 65-km-long trail is divided into 8 stages, from easy to moderate in difficulty, and has something for everyone to enjoy: from steep, remote mountain climbs to flat urban harbourside walks.
 
Last year, over 200 teams took part in our Coastal Trail Mapping Event to try out the trail while documenting their favourite places and stories along the way. Over 1,500 photos and stories were submitted, capturing the surprising and constantly changing views along the trail. The most compelling stories and eye-catching photographs have been filtered into 40 stops and published in our app and inspired an illustrated map of the trail, designed by local creative Carmen Ng.
