Devil's Peak is a mountain just north of the Lei Yue Mun channel on the Kowloon Peninsula. It sits 222 metres above sea level and makes for rewarding views of Junk Bay to the southeast, Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island to the southwest and Kowloon to the north.

Hikers can reach Devil's Peak by way of several convenient footpaths leading up from the Yau Tong MTR Station, Lei Yue Mun fishing villages and the Wilson Trail Section 3 which passes just beside the peak. The paths are a mostly surfaced and easy to walk. However, it is a steady uphill climb with little coverage so bring a hat and water. You'll find stopping points to enjoy the views throughout the hike all the way to the summit.

In addition to enjoying the hike and rewarding views, there are important historic military installations known as the Fortifications of Devil's Peak that you can conveniently explore along the way. These include the Devil's Peak Redoubt at the summit, a small outpost (186 metres) and the impressive Gough Battery (160 metres) which are just alongside the trails.

For those looking to spend more time in the area, you can easily combine Devil's Peak with a visit to the Lei Yue Mun fishing villages which are situated along the channel below the mountain. There you can see sights such as the old lighthouse, wishing tree and historic Tin Hau Temple in addition to the more recently famous seafood bazaar.

This is the first time we walk up this peak and its beautiful and easy to walk up. Majority of the walking are on proper roads. Great for family walk. I will definitely come back again. This place is filled with history, with old fortress to explore. The view of Victoria harbour is amazing. From day time to sunset yo evening.

The walk is easy to get to. Mtr to Yau Tong then walk towards Chinese cemetery. Walk up the hill and you will see a sign to the peak.

Once you finished the hike up, come back down on the same route if you want and walk towards lei yue mun - old fishing village. Seafood is quite expensive though

Maximum rewards for the least amount of effort... takes about 30-45mins hike from Yau Tong MTR all the way up to the peak. Really gentle, great for families. Up there you can see crumbling military barracks overtaken by vegetation, an old cemetery, a rarely seen view of the Harbour, stunning skyscrapers, and nature.

Wilson’s trail. This is a really simple walk/hike on concrete walkways and concrete steps. Really nice to do with really great views. I can imagine a sunset up here is amazing. Totally worthwhile

Earlier reviews describe this hike pretty well. It gives a different view of HK and Victoria Harbour and on the right day provides a spectacular sunset. Easily accessed from Yau Tong or Tiu Keng Leng it forms part of Section 3 of The Wilson Trail.

Started from Tiu Keng Leng
Nice climbs for like 3 km and leads to the Chinese cemetery
From there I took a wild route and it was too hard
I got lost as the way down was too steep and could go up as well
But after a long struggle managed to come to a road and walk home 😍🥰😍🥰

Came here as part of a meetup morning hike starting from Tiu Keng Leng MTR station. The hike was 8km and ended at the Devil’s Peak. It was a bit cloudy but the views were stunning anyway. It was about 2,000 steps in total hiking the different peaks and up to this one, but totally worth it.

To come up to the Devil’s Peak there’s a long way (easier) and a shortcut which is a trail and it’s much harder.

An easy hiking place in town for an half day execise. you can start either from Lamtin Park or the Yau Tong MRT station. I started from Lamtin Park, only the first around hundred of steps maybe hard for you. After that easy path and the nice view will make you feel worth to go. Unfortuntuately, a foggy day for me and nothing I can saw on top of the peak. Will definitely come back in a sunny day!
