🌲😎 3 Hiking Trails for You & Your Adventurous Buddies!

The trees are rustling, its sound echoes through the forest and a small ladybug flies onto the flower nearby. You breathe in the fresh air of the morning mists and make your way through the forest. The sunlight gently streams in through the gaps of the leaves and your friends are encouraging you ahead. Where are you at?


Well, you could be very well at one of Singapore's finest trekking trails (hint: below)!


1. Bukit Timah Hill

Welcome to Singapore’s biggest rainforest! The main path at Bukit Timah Hill provides a relatively smooth incline that's gradual and perfect for a short hike. Once you reach the summit, you're rewarded with a great view of the rustic forest at 163.63 metres at Singapore’s highest hill. For cycling enthusiasts and professional hikers alike, you may also check out the 6.5-kilometre cycling trail for a good introduction to mountain biking in the tropics.


🕐 Nature Reserve Opening Hours: 7am - 7pm daily (entering or remaining in the nature reserve after 7pm is not allowed)

🏔 Highest point: Bukit Timah Summit, 163.63m


2. The Southern Ridges

The Southern Ridges provides a bird's eye view of the city from Henderson Waves bridge, which is famous for being a great photo spot. Check out Mount Faber Park, where you can take the Cable Car ride into Sentosa or head to the Bell of Happiness to wish you and your partner or friends great happiness at Mount Faber Peak. This 10-km trail links up five other parks which are highly scenic as well! The five parks are Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. It's great for a fun day outdoors with your sporty friends!


🏔 Highest point: Henderson Waves Timber Deck, 78m


3. Macritchie Reservoir

Check out the TreeTop Walk at 27m tall for a wonderful view of the forest canopy! For animal lovers, there are almost 80 bird and reptile species here which would make your nature exploration all the more exciting. The entire hike here would be about a 10.5km trail but the view is surely rewarding so do check it out!


🏔 Highest point: TreeTop Walk, 27m


Why did the tree take a nap?

For-rest!


Have a fun hiking adventure!
