Is it safe to hike with Hong Kong's pollution?

Hello expats,

I'm from Canada and love the outdoors. I hike everyday and mountain bike when I'm home in Canada, however, due to the pollution leves in Hong Kong, I've avoided hiking for a number of years, but I wonder if my fears accurate?

Can anyone tell me how healthy it is to hike any of the trails in Hong Kong? or do you have any trails that you hike or mountain bike that you know have a generally low pollution index througout the year?

I feel alive when I'm outdoors, and I don't want irrational fears keeping me from enjoying life, especially since Hong Hong has so many wonderful trails.

Thank you,
