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

There are several trails at Macritchie catering to different people/preferences. You can just stroll around the reservoir grounds and enjoy an evening picnic there (remember your mozzie repellent) or take a 3 hours hike to the tree top walk (closed on Mon) or trek to Bukit Timah nature reserve.

Great place to go hiking on a nice day. I'd recommend the 11 km treetop walk - the view is truly magnificent. There are maps scattered all around the park, and the trails are marked very clearly, so no need to research that beforehand. There are about 5 different hiking routes, graded from easy to difficult, but I'm not certain... More

Went there on a sunny day. We started very early around 8 am. The entire stretch takes a few hours and provides countless opportunities to click good nature pics. The walk to HSBC tree top is interesting but beware of monkeys on the way. Also stack up on some food and water as it is bit lengthy walk from the... More

There are not many places you can get away from civilization in Singapore ! Some real jungle with real wildlife, but you have to travel slowly to get the most out of it. If you are not used to the heat and humidity you will certainly work up a sweat. The Nature Trail and Treetop Walk totals about 12.6km. The... More

me and me GF randomly went there to see how this park was, and we remained amazed, the whole tree-top-walk was amazing, very easy to follow, clean and there are even restrooms in the middle. The experience is incredible, we saw a lot of monkey, birds and those huge lizards swimming in the laguna and in the jungle. A must... More

Nice to see a different surrounding: if you do the entire tracks, you are almost sure to see turtles, dragonflies, monkeys. The tree top walks are fun and is the perfect escape from the city !

If you want to see some jungle in Singapore, this is the place, and there is still wildlife to be seen here, from snakes and dragonflies, birds to families of monkeys. The trails can be a little rugged, but good footwear should see you right. The boardwalk and bridge are excellent. The only slight niggle - even here, there are... More

Nice piece of nature in Singapore. You literally do not see any buildings while wandering in the jungle or around golf course. The tree top walk was fun and it was not crowded at all considering it was Saturday. Just make sure you have mosquito repellent and water.

Accessing this trail is a little painful, but once you're here, it's heavenly. It's a great trail to walk through and the treetop walk is magical. We had a terrific time here!
