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.

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

What an amazing morning at the Tree Top Walk hike today! We spent a beautiful morning at the 13km hike at the Tree Top Walk on Sunday morning. The weather was nice and there were many local and foreign tourists there enjoying the nature too. We love the peace and calm of the nature. Even though it was described as... More

The trail surrounded the MacRitchie Reservoir. You can decide whether to take the longer journey (slightly more than half a day walk) or the short walk (less than an hour). The tree top walk is an attraction which will take about two to three hours to complete. Suitable for family outing.
