Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water. « less

We walked from the Venus Drive to the Tree Top Walk and back. It took us quite a long time as we didn't walk fast and enjoyed the lovely scenery with watching many animals like monkeys, lizards and even a beautiful green snake, what a treat. Sneakers are a good idea, I had Birkenstock which was also very good. There... More

Prepare yourselves for an exhusting yet fun experience at MacRitchie Trail! We took the 11KM hike so if you are planning to visit here, please do bring atleast 1L of water. It's preferrable to visit early in the morning to avoid getting sunburns or too much heat while hiking. -Don't miss the Jelutong Tower and the Tree Top Walk (hanging... More

The periphery track of Macritchie is 10.6kms start to finish. It takes you around the edge of the reservoir, into thick jungle, along safe paths. I have done it maybe fifty times and have seen all manner of interesting animals including a pangolin. It is completely safe, even running at night with a head torch (although a little scary). It...

The 10KM walk is great. I really like it! When it turns dark, it might be a little scary. Last time, I found a 2-meter long lizard in front of me... Amazing...

I'd recommend allowing yourself 6 hours for your trip. took me around 3 hours to get round the reservoir at a slow pace, another 1 hour for tree top walk which i would definitely recommend (not for those scared of heights though) and another 2 hours for monkey watching and eating/re hydrating. Take lots of fluids, there's drinks available at... More

Had a great morning hiking up the Sky bridge then staying up there while a Thunderstorm entertained us in the distance. Got to within a few feet of a faimily of monkees just after the sky walk who were happy to play righ in front of us for about 20 minutes. An excellent antidote to the urban sprawl that surrounds...

A great way to spend a few hours - walking the full loop and the tretop walk takes about 3 hours (its about 14-15K's) and is a fantastic experience. Tip #1- Its warm and humid though, so take a few water bottles (you can refill at the ranger station near the treetop walk) Tip #2 - take a shower when... More

If you are a nature buff, hiker, runner or simply wish to get some exercise this is is the place to visit. There are multiple trails which you could take. Refer the National Parks website for more details. We usually go here for weekly runs with our friends
