The highest natural point in Singapore, at approximately 163 meters high, will give you an opportunity to enjoy beautiful tropical forest. The entrance is free of charge for everyone. Beautiful, well established picturesque trails, monkeys (yes, we did see them), birds... and yet, very quiet. The walk towards the highest point is a bit steep. I suggest you go when the weather is a bit rainy and cooler, as it might be hard to climb the road if it's too hot.

I had planned to go to the visitor centre and walk to the Hindhede Quarry. But arriving at Beaty World Station there is no signage or help to find where you are going. I crossed over the motorway and started walking on the rail corridor, as suggested by locals who I asked for directions, but completely missed any turnoff to get onto those Bukit trails. Again, there is no directional help to assist. So I just ended up walking the rail corridor to the next MRT station of Hillview. That was a nice walk (although long), but it just wasn’t what I had planned at all. I would suggest taking a taxi to drop you off right at the visitor centre.

An equatorial forest in the heart of a city. A transparent water in the heart of a forest. Turtles, monkeys, snakes, fish...

It's amazing to be here knowing that you are just a walk away from a metro stop. Singapore will never ever cease to surprise you. And always for the better.

All trails are impeccably marked and maintained. The kindness of every person you meet.

This place… This place to dream.

a forest that smells of spices
a thousand voices the voice
of insects

Review of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore

The review focuses upon the trail to the summit of Bukit Timah Hill within the context of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (‘BTNR’) and the socio-economic value of open green spaces for local communities – everywhere.
Head for the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (‘BTNR’) and you’re in the centre of the island and about 10 km from the country’s commercial district and the popular tourist heartlands of Marina Bay, the heritage buildings in the ex-colonial administrative area and, of course, the Gardens by the Bay. This is where short-term visitors can typically be found – at those well-known international destinations. And why not – this is a comfortable, well-managed and interesting country.
Want to explore the back blocks of the country? Here you’re far more likely to meet the locals; to escape the traffic, high rise, noise, etc. and to enjoy the relative tranquillity of the native rainforest with the flora and fauna that has been carefully encouraged, re-introduced, nurtured and more; to catch a glimpse of the island as-it-once-was before the modern era? That will mean taking a relative subjective view of what you can see and do in the wilderness areas that have been (re-)established over the years.
The parks, reserves, wet-lands and water catchment areas available across the island represent an asset beyond measure to the country – in the preservation of what once was, but also in the way that these lands/forests have been made available to local people – for recreation, access to nature and the personal health/well-being that comes from escaping the built environment.
The lands/forests are well-used by local people. Of a weekend, for example the trails, stairways, tracks and surfaced access roads are the domain of bikes, scooters and walkers – many in family groups with kids in pushchairs or in backpacks. Exercise people can be found everywhere. And why not. We had a couple of hours enjoying the trail in the BTNR – from the enormous Visitor Centre at the base of the summit trail to the rock on the summit that proudly promote it as the highest point in the island at 163.63 m. Stand on the summit rock – as many people were doing for a photo shot – and, for a few minutes, you’re the highest girl/boy/woman/man in the country.
Start with the BTNR then. Well, it’s small at just 1.7 km2. It runs consecutively with the Dairy Farm Nature Park and a couple of quarries to the north and, to the south, two smaller nature reserves and wetlands.
Next to the BTNR, and separated by the Bukit Timah Expressway, is the Central Catchment Area – comprising a mix of nature reserves, lakes, open lands and forestlands with a core area estimated >40 km2. There are additional green lands linking the core with the northern and western coasts of the island. So, lots of walking/biking opportunities.
The history of the island’s timber/land resources during the colonial years has always been one of exploitation – extracting timber and working the land for minerals. Fortuitously, the island’s authorities had sufficient to vision – late 19th century remember – to evaluate land cover/forests and then to establish a series of nature reserves. BTNR was the first in 1883. This did not halt exploitation, but it subsequently led to further protective measures and resulted in the 28 km2 reserves island-wide available today - under the control of the National Parks Board.
Of course, none of this was clear at the time we chose to walk to the top of Bukit Timah Hill. We estimated the walk at 2.50 km one way. It took us about 45 minutes following the tar seal track – four adults and three little kids – the three-year-old with a push chair in reserve. Apart from the first 250 m which were steep, it was an easy shallow gradient for most of the way. The alternative 150 m steps that provide a shorter route to the summit were closed off.
Round the final bend and there’s this surprisingly open platform of land – no point, of course, but simply level/rounded land with a public shelter. Take a seat and look around you. There were an estimated 50 people doing just that when we were there. Perhaps, one of the most interesting features was the historical ‘Summit’ board which described the hill – in words and photos - during the 19th C. The hill was largely denuded of cover. Everything you see today >120 years later is new. There used to be a ‘rest house’ here for the selected few to escape the colony for a few days … at a cost of S$2/day in 1892. (It was not clear if this was in 1890’s or today’s money.) Whatever, it attracted limited interest by that time and, in the early 1900s, it was replaced by a telecommunication tower. Now there’s a choice.
Gorgeous, lush green foliage and endless trees envelope the trail to the summit. Eighty years of protected management? Tropic rainforests grow fast when encouraged. Of the wildlife there we saw a handful of monkeys, some distant/noisy birds; and the people - the majority were middle- to vintage-age, and there were fewer younger people/families. It was decidedly easier when descending, but the addition of more strategically spaced benches would have made the walking easier both ways. At the beginning of the trail the Visitor’s Centre was still closed.
For those interested getting to the trail is easy. Head for the Beauty World MRT station. Through the Mall behind, cross the Upper Bukit Timah Road bridge, then 400 m along Hindhede Road is the Visitor’s Centre. Make sure you get there before it closes.

After a hiatus of more than a year and also due to the closure of Dairy Farm Loop, we hiked the Dairy Farm Loop today. The Devils' Stairs is reopened since April 2023. I was struggling up the steps due a recent leg injury but made it nonetheless. The next challenge was the 184 steps. Did it but had to stop for rest along the way.

The Dairy Farm Loop is shown as "Difficult" but for the very fit, it will be easy. Those who exercise regularly will find it a moderate workout.

MRT - Beauty World Station. Walk about 700m to reach the reserve.

The walk is nice, not too difficult, and we’ll signposted. It’s nice to get out of Singapore city centre and break some fresh air surrounded by nature, but the walk itself is a bit boring. I’ve seen no monkey or other wild animals. I couldn’t complete the loop leading to Singapore Quarry, which may have affected my rating of this attraction.

This was a great contrast to the modern parts of Singapore, we spent a good few hours hiking through the reserve going up to the summit, then doing the loop. The sounds of the jungle were so loud and interesting and we saw a variety of fauna and animals/reptiles.

The hike was well sign posted and paths were clear.

It is a steep climb in the beginning, I was impressed by the elders who were going up and must do it as their daily exercise as well as the runners!

At 7.30 am, I started hiking along the Rail Corridor from Alexandra- Queensway Park Connector to the Rifle Range Nature Park. I reached the entrance opposite Beauty World at about 8.45 am and commenced my walk towards the Quarry Wetland and Colugo Deck. This is the trail with the most visitors.

It was really very crowded today at the park on a public holiday. From the Rambai Boardwakk to the Visitor centre and from the Gliders Boardwalk to the Quarry wetland and the Colugo trail, it was like you were at a AAA attraction in populouse China where everyone is walking shoulder to shoulder brushing their way up the stairs.

There was a signboard at the entrance of the Colugo deck which stated 'Maximum capacity not to exceed 20 persons' but apparently from the crowd size it is exceedingly that number. I noticed some visitors extended their hand phones out of the rail perimeter to take photos, I was so worried the hand phones may accidently dropped down to the wetland below. Nevertheless, the panaromic view at the deck was breathtaking.

The stroll through the Gliders Boardwalk was quite immersive with the dense forest very near to the boardwalk. I saw few visitors noticed a durian and a rambutan tree in the dense forestation.

This time my goal was to complete the Colugo trail but from the map, there are few other trails like the Gaharu Trail, the Banyan Trail and the Senapang trail that extended to the Bukit Timah reserve and the MacRitchie Reservoir. The qharry wetland paled in comparison with at Hindhede which appears to me more picturesque. Nevertheless, I will come again to explore the rest of the trails.

Singapore isn't really renowned for its hiking, but this is one of the best spots. There are a lot of monkeys around this area.

Overall, the climb posted a decent challenge, especially for people who are relatively out of shape and need more acclimatisation. In addition, there are loose pebbles and rocks along the way, with stretches of muddy/slippery road, so one needs to watch out for their footing.
