Hiking activities in Macau
The Little Taipa Trail (Trilho de Taipa Pequena) is a 2km-long circuit around a hill (111m) of that name in northwestern Taipa, reachable via Estrada Lou Lim Ieok. The 2.2km-long Big Taipa Trail (Trilho de Taipa Grande) rings Taipa Grande, a 160m-high hill at the eastern end of the island. You can access the trail via a short paved road off Estrada Colonel Nicolau de Mesquita.
Coloane’s and Macau’s longest trail, the 8100m Coloane Trail (Trilho de Coloane), begins in the mid-section of Estrada do Alto de Coloane (bus 21A, stop Estrata Do Campo, enter Estrata Militar across the road, after 600m, turn right) and winds around the island. You can make a detour to Alto de Coloane (170m) to see the A-Ma Statue.
The shorter Northeast Coloane Trail (Trilho Nordeste de Coloane), near Ká Hó, runs for about 3km. Other trails that offer good hiking include the 1.5km-long Altinho de Ká Hó Trail and the 1.5km-long Hác Sá Reservoir Circuit (Circuito da Barragem de Hác Sá), which both loop around the reservoir to the northwest of Hác Sá beach.
