It starts from Alexandra Arch Bridge and continues few kilometres all the way to Mt.Faber(Cable Car Station). Wear comfy shoes and bring lots of water with you. On the way you see amazing views, so definitely a must visit, if you are even in decent shape. There were "beware of monkeys" signs, but we didn't see any

we took the marang trail that starts from the harbourfront station through mount faber park - this can be a taxing albeit beautiful walk as you walk up the hundereds of steps to mount faber trail that leads to the famous Henderson waves bridge. This is a uniquely designed bridge connecting mount faber park to telok blangah park above Henderson road. The bridge lights up and looks all the more beautiful at night. One can enjoy panoramic views of the city from different points in the park. The Southern Ridges are ideal for nature lovers, bird watchers, or even if you enjoy walking amidst nature. Dress light and carry plenty of drinking water!

This trek is suitable for children and the elderly as it's made up of just slopes. We were impressed how they built it with all that metal structures.

It was pure serenity standing on the ridges and enjoying the forest views, right in the middle of lots of trees. One of the best and easy ways to enjoy the greenery this garden city can offer.

Don't forget to visit the nearby hort park and do pack your picnic food / drinks as I don't see any eateries nearby.

What a lovely place to explore! We went to Henderson Wave Bridge and walked around! We saw SQUIRRELS!! Although it was humid, it was still a lovely place to have a look around!

We went along the forest-walkway thing as well, which was beautiful! Lots of good photo ops!

An excellent nature walk in the midle of a busy city state. Start at Pasir Panjang Hill car park, as the entrance from the main road is very steep arrive by a taxi to one of the hill carparks to avoid the steepest part of the walk. You need to be in good shape to walk in from the main road to the car park area. Once you get started on the trail it can take 3 hours to walk all the way to Harbour Front where there is the large shopping centre with food and drink avaialble. Take a small back pack with umbrellas, small snacks and plenty of water. Wear clothes for a hot day of walking and comfortable flat shoes for walking uphill and climbing stairways. It is not an easy walk but well worth the effort to see some superb views and camera opportunities. Beware of the Monkeys on the elavated forest walkway, they sit on the handrail minding their own business but a paper or plastic bag or anything that could contain food is up for being snatched and they are not easily put off. So put food packages and snacks out of sight and calmly walk by them, they wont pay you any attention if there is nothing to eat in sight. If you want an interesting long nature walk in the morning or late afternoon with the trail ending by the sea this is it. Can be busy with locals out for a family walk at weekends but never crowded.
