We started at central, and using the mid-level escalators gradually made our way towards the Central Green Trail. The trail winds up the peak, and more or less follows the path of the tram. We did it during August - high temperatures and humidity, just...More

Well signposted route. Crosses a few roads and just look around for the signs. Some parts are steps some is quite steep but it's relatively short and the top half is very pretty. You can reward yourself at Pacific Coffee with its great views.

Easy to get lost as others say. Nice views and a completely different environment that lets you forget you are in an urban jungle.

If you want to get to Victoria Peak, but don't want to do the touristy tram, then hike up. One way is this trail. However, as others have pointed out, signage is poor. I didn't see my first sign until Station 10 - and from...More

If you are young, completely fit and healthy, and used to taking long uphill hikes then maybe this will be an easy hike for you. But don't be mistaken into thinking that this trails easy by couch potato standards. This is a 3km+ uphill battle...More
