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.

This is a truly great place to check out for a group outing despite some coordination. The nature trails are something that we don't get to see much of anywhere else within the Garden City. Allow yourself time to also enjoy the different fauna along the trails. Have to make time to stop and enjoy and admire and not just... More

One of the best trail in SG. Almost 6 -10 km . Make sure u take enough water and food . Not good for rainy day. Free of cost. Very good for group trekking.

We decided to get away from the rat race of Singapore city centre and therefore went to MacRitchie Reservoir Trail and Treetop walk. We walk quite a lot and the 10k route wasn't arduous but it wasn't an inspiring or interesting walk other than it was through jungle type fauna as opposed to hill walking / woodland walking in the...

Great trail walk or run (about 10km) around the loop. Other trails within also. Amazing place and you'll see lots of monkeys and other wildlife. Take plenty of water and good shoes. Excellent for trail runners too as the tracks are wide allowing safe passing of walkers.

its a hot experience but well worth an afternoon of your time. Pack plenty of water and a small towel as it will get sweaty.

Some of the best places in Singapore costs nothing and MacRitchie Nature Trail is one of them. Excellently managed by NParks, this place is a must-go for Singapore tourists!

Boy did I struggle to find this place but to see so much green in a city like Singapore is always fascinating. Well worth it!

I thought at first I cannot do it. But hey, after the heat inducing canoeing, I finally decided to take the trek. The trek was few kilometers long but I was fortunate to meet fellow Filipinos walking along with me. My spirit and mind came alive and kicking... With the Ranger's Station in site, I felt relieved that finally the... More
