Hong Kong's country parks amount to about 40% of the total area of Hong Kong. They are our natural and irreplaceable assets. They are easily accessible and enjoyed by all and require protection. Management plans have yet to be developed for them by the Government and development pressures constantly threaten the country parks and the landscape.
The mobile app TrailWatch allows users to use the latest information technology to track their hikes, share incidents among other users and empowers individuals, groups and institutions to participate in the process of monitoring Hong Kong's country parks.
