From the south of Hong Kong to the North, the Wilson trail covers it all. The whole journey is 78km (excluding the ferry ride 😉). This is 78km of ridgelines and mountains, making it the most technically challenging trail.
The Wilson trail is relentless. The other 3 have long periods of flat terrain, to allow you to catch your breath....Wilson does not. The trail is sandwiched between Hong Kong's two most formidable day hikes,the Twins at the start and the Apostles at the end, for a total gain of 4043m
All this terrain means it can be slow going in parts. The full trail runs at an average of 30 hours of hiking time. Entry and exit points are far and few, so plan your days carfeully.
