Hey everyone! I will be in Hong Kong August 1-5th. I LOVE hiking and would love a chance to hit the trails during my visit. Anyone up for a hike, or have any recomendations for a good day hike? Thanks, hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Claire, I'm also visiting Hong Kong and would like to go hiking while I'm here. I was going to try to join someone else's hiking trip the other day but it ended up not working out; I did meet him for dinner later and he recommended the trail he had been on, namely the MacLehose Trail. Maybe that one, unless you have another idea?

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday would all be OK for me (although I'll want to be back to the more central areas of HK by nightfall on Thursday and Friday).

You should post your message in the main HK CouchSurfing group too, as more people read that one. :)

You didn't post the wrong place but not in H.K. at right time for hiking. Its too hot and humid to hike in July/August. Most hikers in H.K. is doing stream/sea shore hiking which combine of walking, climbing and of course swiming to reduce heat. I hope someone can lead the way and make it on 4 or 5/Aug.

If you are available only in the afternoon I perfer to take boat from Sai Kung Pier to Sharp Island for swimming in Half Moon Bay with a little bid walking up hill if you like.

Hi Ming,
It seem most of us unable to go together at right timing may be we can go next time then.
