Hard to see the monkeys, but you can hear them. A very pleasant walk through tropical rain forest - well marked trails. Not much in the way of other information on site. Great place to exercise and feel the forest.

A secluded wander through natural "bush" in the midst of the metropolis. Native birds, monkeys and lizards abound!

The reviews (obviously not by us locals) posted below throws confusion to foreign visitors hoping to have a hike here , Well, it 's closed until maybe April 2015 but then again maybe till 2016. The reviews below is more appropriate for describing Bukit Batok Nature Reserve (2 kms away ) and Hindhinde Park which is just adjacent to BT... More

Visited this place most weekends cause it was in my neighbourhood so I would run around the nature Reserve in all weathers . Busy most days people of Singapore certainly love and Respect their Open Spaces . This place is massive and it gives you an idea that Singapore was once and still is a Tropical Rain forest . There's... More

We arrived at the Nature Reserve quite excited to begin a hike through Singaporean horticulture, however were very disappointed to learn that the bulk of the reserve is closed until 2015. There were some trails that were open that we managed to explore, however nothing compared to the many photos included in the reviews I researched before visiting. Important note... More

If you are from overseas and heard rave reviews of this great hiking trail, don t bother to find you way here until next April as all entry points are closed/high fenced. Don t even try and find a way to sneak in from the Dairy Farm entrance or other side entrances because they are blocked too for your safety.... More

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is relatively small and can get quite crowded on weekends, but nevertheless it's worthwhile a visit. There is a parking near the entrance which is not too big and fills up rather quickly on a nice day. The nature reserve is quite a contrast to Singapore's urban city center and the jungle feel is especially exciting... More

The beautiful Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is closed for 2 years as from this week for improvement works on soil and the nature trails, and adding more facilities for visitors. The main tarmac road that goes up to the summit at 164m high will likely re-open after 6 months. Improvement works on the nature trails will take a longer time,... More
