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

If you like nature and want to get some exercise go here. The full loop will be about 3-4 hrs so bring water. Dont forget a camera you'll see lots of monkeys and maybe some large clouded monitor lizards if you keep your eyes open. It was about a 10 dollar cab ride from downtown.

We caught the bus to Venice drive and started the hike from there to the tree tops walk. Loved it, we got our morning exercise, had a lovely walk along boardwalks, over the fabulous tree tops suspension bridge and then back to a different exit, lorne drive I think and caught a bus from there. This was a longer way... More

I live near MacRitchie Reservoir and have popped up a few times now to get in a decent walk away from the traffic and noise of Singapore. There are several different trails you can take depending on how far you want to walk, it's very pretty to look at and the facilities are also good. There is a nice restaurant,... More

I should thank Trip advisor for helping us to find such a nice place right within the city of Singapore. There are quite a few trails that it is impossible to cover in one day. Took the Tree top trail and it was an excellent hike right to the tree top. With a group of friends we reached there around... More

My cousin, who is based in Singapore, brought me to MacRitchie Nature Trail one time and we did have fun doing all the trails. I love the nature feel of the place, truly relaxing. I am planning to spend one whole day here on my next visit. Please stay away from the monkeys, a bunch of them grabbed our food... More

i have lost count of how many times i have hiked through the well-beaten treks along the Macritchie Reservior but no matter how many times I have been there, it will always be a place I turn to, for some respite from the busy city life, and also for some exercise in the midst of nature. There are several trails... More

Thanks tripadvisor. I found this on top attractions list. Today was very tiring but very worthwhile. The trek from the reservoir was ardous and a level of fitness will be required. The path is very well signposted and a number of trails are available. If you want to cross the bridge you can expect to trek a minimum of seven... More

We always hike at this place and never ever feel bored. If you are a fit person, you can easily cover the longer route. Lots of scenery, monkeys all around. There is a man-made reservoir which is truly beautiful to sit by and enjoy.

This was by any means the highlight of our trip. We did all the other touristy stuff but didn't care so much about them. But this was different. Amazing this forest is right in a middle of a city! You can see many wild animals if you're lucky. Monkeys, birds and turtles! Just don't forget to bring lots of drinks... More
