it is a tough trail from MacRitchie reservoir to Bukit Timah reserve, but with animals (monkeys, tortoises, water monitors and son on) and different species of forest along the trail. It's natural and expressive experience.

We just did the section of this trail that was called the tree top trail. 3 mile round trip. The tree top bridge is at the top of the canopy for a beautiful view of the jungle and lake. We saw monkeys and a snake.

It’s was absolutely wonderful to hike the whole of macritchie. However if PARKS could plant more trees to hide the island club golf course, it would be perfect. Hey remember to take along a bootle of water and an Apple .... just in case.

A beautiful place in the middle of a big city. We liked the loop and it was just lovely. Good footing. Not difficult. Well travelled but not busy. Saw several runners. It would be a great place to run or hike. Lots of shade. We saw monkeys squirrels and lizards. Kayaking and canoeing available at certain times on the day. The tree top walk was closed on Mondays.

This was easy to get to and easy to get around. I only got a little lost toward the end where you’re not sure if you’re meant to be at a golf course and then there’s suddenly a major road. But it was still very worthwhile. I loved the hanging bridge and saw lots of wild monkeys!

Ran on this trail today early morning. I would advise wearing a headlamp or keeping a torch if you plan to walk or run this trail before 7 am. Also, you will need trail shoes. Excellent and easy trail. Not too many great views, but it does have up and down slopes for a good exercise. I got lost a couple of times but this app was awesome in making sure I was back on track.

2.5 hour walking length. Variety of views of reservoir and jungle. Mixture of mainly dry dirt walking trails and boardwalks. Monkeys, squirrels and monitor lizards as well as a variety of insects.
