Overview

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.

We really enjoyed the trails and layout. Lots of variety on paved, boardwalk, dirt/gravel trails. It's a nice break from the pavement, shopping, traffic, heat. Bring water and set aside a few hours to wander and enjoy the break!

Nice trails to feel in the middle of nature while in the big city. The odd spot can get busy in the weekend but most you feel like you’re on your own

A beautiful place in the middle of a big city. We hiked 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...More

Had an awesome time with my running group friends at McR trails. The route is a bit challenging as a part of it runs along the reservoir and is wooden without any railings, but that adds to the fun. Lots of hills, up & down...More

The MacRitchie Nature Trail was such a wonderful experience for us. Its a perfect way to 'tree bath' and once you are here, you won't feel like being in the bustling city of Singapore..... The place is serene, really well maintained, safe and clean.

Great jungle park/walk - easy to get there by bus or taxi. But take water with you, Feels like you are totally away from all the other aspects of modern big building Singapore.

Good place to go to get away from the city. You will be close to nature and greenery but it will be hot and humid as well, so do wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and stay hydrated. Worth the effort to go to the Tree...More

The hike to the "tree top walk" (pictured) is not easy, and yes, Singapore is hot and humid about 365 days a year. But is it ever worth it. At the one-way bridge (the "tree top" part), you will likely be greeted by several monkeys...More

We went on a 6 mile tree top hike the first day we arrived. Stunning scenery, lots of wildlife to be seen. Loved seeing all the macaques and Monitor lizards!

I would happily take a baby. No aggressive monkeys but if you are where monkeys might be then keep food hidden. We had a picnic on the trail.

It is a nature trail, not a road. So no, it is not lit with laterns. And it is not a smooth trail, rather rugged. Not recommendable after dark.
