Nowadays,in the circumstances of the rapid development of urbanization,our mountain cities are experiencing a construction process with high density and high strength,therewith get the result of high population density, space and social reconstruction. In consequence of the unreasonable overall master planning and the lack of space reserve, the situation revealed the traditional walking space was occupied. Therefore, it was found that the unique three-dimensional streets system of the mountain city has been destroyed. Accordingly, this paper seeks to address these problems. First of all, this paper analyzes the related concepts, such as mountain city, three-dimensional walking space, then analyzes the composition of the three-dimensional walking space also its rich expression. After that, it gets enlightenment from case study of the Centre Hong Kong and field research of the Zhangjiahuayuan Part at Yuzhong District walking system—the Mountain Trails, which including the waking itinerary routes, accessibility, safety, identifiability, etc. Next, take the Mountain Trails for example and draw a conclusion and put forward optimization strategies aiming at the three-dimensional walking system.
