Distance posts are erected along Hong Kong Trail at every 500m, from numbers H001 to H100. These numbered posts can help to identify your location. There are two types of wooden signs: the large ones indicate road crossings, destinations of different directions, distances and estimated walking time. The small sign is carved "dual hikers" to show the directions.
