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.

A Good walk and you need a fair amount of fitness. The Wave Bridge looks brilliant, and it is being painted at the moment. Just watching the painters hanging off the bridge over the road is worth a look!

The walk from Mt Faber park to Kent Park and the canopy walk is simply amazing...walking through the Henderson walk is simply wonderful...not many people adventure here, just some locals jogging...but it is totally worth the visit...the forest walk, the flower walk and then the wonderful Hort park. It is all a wonderful green jewel in the middle of the... More

We had completed the Southern Ridges about two years ago by starting at Kent Park MRT, but found the going quite tiring as it tended to be largely uphill. So this time we started at Mt.Faber and did the walk in reverse, so it was largely downhill, and what a difference. We were less exhausted which allowed us to enjoy... More

Like some of the other reviewers have said, bring water, umbrella , some stamina and start early. It is very humid here. We had the taxi take us to the Henderson Wave bridge . (The hotel staff didn't recognize the term 'Southern Ridges'). This way you avoid the steep walk up to the Wave Bridge. From there it is very... More

Love it! Being there a few times but really need stamina to walk up the Mount Faber. Else take a bus ride to Hortpark from Harbout front mrt station and walk from there. Enjoy the scenes and natural air. Cooling in the morning and evening but try not to go too late, otherwise it became too dark to walk the... More

Not a place to catch a look of wildlife but great space and colour for a morning workout. Went there thinking it was a botanic garden but turns out to be a kind of a park. Lots of people visit the place for a stroll, so we made best out of it as well.

Great workout. Please take note of the following: 1. Please visit the Washroom before you set off (some clowns actually pee'ed over the fence) 2. Bring an umbrella, in case it rains. This is Singapore. The weather is as crazy as Kim Jong Un. 3. Water, water, water. Pointing to point 2. Yes, welcome to Singapore 4. Camers please. Lots... More
