This is the second time I climbed the Central Green Trail up to Victoria Peak. The trail head is relatively hidden but with its proximity to the Peak Tram base station you've got a helpful landmark to locate it. And there is something about walking...More

This trail is great for hiking and an alternative to the peak vs the tram. Very quiet, serene surroundings, very visually beautiful. However, if you don’t know where you’re going, it’s easy to make a wrong turn or go down the wrong road (like we...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.
