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

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

I went here on the recommendation of a friend who lives quiet near. The trail to the tree top walk is absolutely beautiful and well worth it, it takes approx under a hour hour to complete at a reasonable pace. It's a really tranquil and beautiful place to go for a hike and the tree top bridge makes for a... More

Really enjoyed this walk and got to see plenty of wildlife, including the macaques which was amazing to see. The food place wasnt open when we were there so be sure to take plenty of water.

We spent many hours walking in the MacRitchie park. The paths are well sign-posted & easy to walk on, but I would recommend closed shoes. The TreeTop Walk, where you walk to a bridge overlooking the tops of the trees is magnificent. Highly recommended.
