As Long as you don't get caught in a tropical rainstorm this is a fantastic walk, varying routes - 30minute to 3 hours walks, not so much wildlife in view but treetops are fantastic. Cooler. Any many things of vegetation interest on route

This amazing trail leads you through four different parks. I started in the west (Kent Ridge MRT) and did the whole tour: Kent Ridge park - Hort park - Telok Blangah Hill park - Mount Faber park. From there you can exit near Vivocity shopping mall (HarbourFront MRT). It's a long and strenuous hike, roughly 30'000 steps involved, so pack... More

We walked the full length and did the loop at Alexander bridge down to the "mangrove" and Labrador reserve and back up to the bridge. Had picnic by the sea. Only 4K extra. Had a good day five hours slow walking to keep cooler and take photos. Not very peaceful though, more an urban trail with greenery, Horst park being... More

The Southern Ridges is a whole walking trail stretching from Kent Ridge Park to Mount Faber, over 2 pedestrian bridges namely the Alexander Arch and the Henderson Waves. The latter is a beautiful undulating boardwalk bridge sloping gently from one end to the other, whereas the other pales in comparison. The walk amongst the tree tops is along the Forest... More

We did this walk sort of backwards, so that we ended up at Mount Faber. This meant we expended a bit more energy, but it was still an easy walk. The canopy walk and Henderson Waves are incredible, and the view at the top of Mount Faber is not to be missed! I would advise doing the walk this way... More

Started out from the science park and walked though Hort Park, the bridge offering views of that condo with flats like boxes as well as the colonial bungalows, the beautiful Alexandria Waves (love it), and enjoyed the view of the sea. Like ending up at Vivo City via Mount Faber. Great walk!

Not a jungle trek but you'd need a good amount of energy to walk and explore all of the surrounding are as the walk itself is very long and lead to all directions. You get to hear monkeys and if lucky, see some. Take insect repellent on hot days and lots of drinking water.

Cannot do this walk in hot day! So start the walk early in the morning or clouded day. Take full of water/snacks and enjoy the view and nature with many rests. The path is easy to find although some parts can be broken and doing maintenance. Not recommend really small/not fit children unless you are well prepared.

The southern ridges will have a lot of visitors during weekend mornings. It is a good place to have a brisk walk on weekend morning and you will get to be close to nature and do a bit of exercise.

The Southern Ridges is a very suitable place for morning walks or jogs, as the boardwalk treads through a serene forest. It is also a great place for families as there are playgrounds and attractions for kids along the way. However, if you choose to visit, do bring along insect repellent as The Southern Ridges is home to many species... More
