The walk from Mt Faber via Telok Blangah Hill Park and Hort Park to Kent Ridge Park is an easy to follow path which is great if you're looking for somewhere to exercise away from the traffic. The canopy walk section in Kent Ridge Park is my favourite section, but the rest of the walk is also pretty good. As... More

Good morning walk in southern ridges. Accessible by metro, walkable even with baby strollers or wheelchair. Not really so into-nature, but hey, in Singapore... very easy to follow route and lots to see.

Walked from Hort Park to Mount Faber and down to Vivo City. Wonderful experience seeing a variety of birds, the odd lizard and a domestic cat ! Part of the walk is on an elevated walkway above the forest canopy. Its safe and virtually traffic free and also well signed. The gardens at Hort Park are definitely worth a visit.... More

Kent Ridge to VivoCity is about 4.6 miles of the most amazing "nature trail". The paths are in immaculate condition, the collection of bridges is spectacular beyond belief. There are innumerable toilet facilities along the way, as well as recreational and snacking places. Everything is signposted most diligently, the views are breathtaking, if the weather is friendly do spend a... More

Thank goodness my husband did the research and we started the walk from Mount Faber Park. The first 15 minutes involved a strenuous walk up numerous steps, but then the rest of the almost 8 kilometer walk was down hill or along well maintained paths and bridges. The views on this walk, the works of engineering and best of all... More

Perhaps this is the closest thing Singapore has to trekking. The paths are well maintained, and even a sedentary person could climb up Mount Faber without too much difficulty. Hort Park is also a beautiful place, as a plant nursery. Visit Henderson Waves and the other bridges, which are magnificent works of art as well. Take a photo of the... More

Take a walk through the lush greenery. The walkers get good views of various trees and plants and also a view of the sentosa island. Make sure you only take the correct path and not the route through the forests because there are many wrongly placed signboards here that may mislead you and eventually you may end up getting lost....

We started our walk from Vivocity. You take exit D and on your left hand side starts the Marang trail. It is a bit steep but via steps so I didn't think it was too bad. You can see some colonial houses in the forest and some nice flowers. It doesn't take long and you find yourself at the top... More

Absolutely loved this walk - we started at Hort Park and finished at Mount Faber. The park was beautiful, and we took lovely photos of the themed gardens. The gardeners working the vegetable plots were friendly and informative, sharing with us their knowledge of the plants. The entire walk from Alexandra Arch up to the Henderson Waves was nice and...

It is a creatively and cool idea to link the 3 hill ridges of Mt Faber, Telok Blangah Hill and Kent Ridge to form this 2-3hrs hiking trail. best time to visit is in the late afternoon so you can enjoy the sunset view on Henderson waves.
