Owner description: A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water catchment system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. 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.

“trail runners, nature trippers, stressed people, etc,...go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Went here when the smog in singapore was level high but the trees covering the whole place helped a lot in oxygenation while I was running...the choices for different trail route will give d run more exciting! This was the best place I went to in Singapore! If I want tranquility, go here. If u want to train for a trail run, best place.release stress and meditate, highly recommended!

“Great getaway from hustle and bustle of city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I am expat in Singapore, coming from the outdoor rich state of Idaho. While i love the melting pot culture off Singapore i also love the quiet of nature and this little slice of jungle trails offers great getaway, so much so i have taken up jogging just to decompress on occasion two or three times a week. It has easy access, nice wide and well managed trails and boardwalks.

Now however if you do hike it note its about 12km around so take lots of water and wear good walking or running shoes. For a big treat you can work in the tree top walk, little extra distance but awesome views and experience

“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Walked the blue trail to the treetop walk and the yellow trail back, approx 15 km took us 3,5 hours to complete. We took the MRT (Caldecott station) close to MacRitchie reservoir.

“Great for nature walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Peaceful and calm, it's away from the usual hustle and bustle of the city. Great place to run, bike, and clear your head. Has different trails as well depending on your preferred run/walk distance.

“Lovely hiking but can be crowded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I love going to MacRitchie. I live in Singapore and we often venture out early on Saturday morning to hit the trails. You can hike as little or as much as you want. There are some great food stalls to reward yourself after the hike.

Bring plenty of water and snacks. There is a toilet and a fountain to rehydrate at in the center of the park.

Sometimes, there can be too many people on the trails, making it more of a time to watch out for others walking and running than to enjoy nature.

It can also get hot! Dress cool and bring mosquito repellant.

We always go back and we always have fun!!
