The trail is set high, at treetop level, a lot of educational information on various tree species is posted here and there. Sorry that met no monkeys ;(

A nice patch of wilderness in the city. Cool styles of architecture, a bit confusing to navigate at times but brilliant and fun!

With the hubby and 4 year old son, start our journey from Telok Blangah Hill car park to Mt Faber. Great walk and green scenery.

We started from Harbourfront MRT and managed to reach as far as Kent Ridge Park and what an enjoyable walk is was. You can do it at your own pace and there was points where you could leave the trail if you found it too much. I would suggest you go armed with sun cream, hat and a bottle of... More

We chose to hike Southern Ridges from west to east starting at Kent Ridge Park. Way finding to the park entrance from the Kent Ridge Park MRT was non-existent. We had difficulty finding the park access point. We turned onto Science Drive but still no signage. Fortunately there was someone walking about, so we stopped to ask him for directions.... More

A lovey at grade walk from Mt Faber (from the fork in the road just after the cable car) to Alexandra Road / Hort Park. Get to see great views over the CBD and West Coast areas from a lovey shady trail. Great for kids as the distance is not too far and is mostly level walking.

This hike is great for many reasons, one of which is it's a contrast to other parts of Singapore such as Orchard Road, Marina Bay, etc...There is nothing flashy about this attraction but it's beautiful and very well maintained. It's also free and not very crowded. I started my hike from the Marang Trail, accessible from the Harbourfront MRT, and... More

We walked most of this route including Hort Park, the Henderson Waves and the Canopy Walk and found them incredibly accessible, enjoying beautiful views of the city and the port as we strolled along. Although it was hot, there are bathroom facilities provided throughout the walk, although it was more difficult to obtain water so taking water with you is... More

This is definitely a must-visit walk in Singapore. Being a Singaporean myself, I am ashamed to say that it took me about six years since its launch to visit the route. While this route end-to-end is to/from Kent Ridge Park to Harbourfront at Vivocity, you may start at any point. We started from Hort Park and ended at Marang Trail,... More

An excellent way to fill up your lungs with fresh air, freshen your eyes with more than 50 shades of green, feast your nose and ears with the smells and sounds of nature. Walk all the way and reach the wonderful HortPark as you enjoy tremendous views of the port. A wonderful oasis of green in urban Singapore!
