I hike Wilson One two-three times a week. One of the more challenging trails but well worth it. Beautiful views, clear/clean/fresh views. NOT for inexperienced hikers - lots of steps and tough terrain. Be sure to both travel light and pack supplies (water, sunscreen, hat,...More

We did the hike from Parkview to Stanley today. Twin peaks 300+m up and down. Many many steps - easily over 1000. Steep in places. Tougher coming down than up. V beautiful views. Took us 4 + hours.

I went to HK on a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip thinking I'd be stuffing my face and flashing my credit card. A friend convinced me to do this hike to "pre-burn" lunch, and I'm so glad I did. The twins and violet hill are not terribly...More
