Want some challenge? Get your calves working with the steep incline of Bukit Timah Hill! With the choice between a steeper trail, which is definitely more suitable for experienced hikers. or a gentler but still intense slope, you can explore Singapore's highest peak. We consider this more or an intermediate trail due to its paved walkways, but do be careful when approaching the wildlife or navigating the road.
📍Nearest MRT: Bukit Timah
Tough: Seng Chew Quarry

A remnant of the past, Seng Chew Quarry is an undisturbed plot of nature, with no paved roads. Non-slip shoes are a must, with the trek to the quarry being one lined with mud and grass. Do take care of the land, making sure not to leave rubbish, and be rewarded with beautiful, serene views that are hard to find in a city as industrialised as Singapore.
📍Nearest MRT: Bukit Gombak
