Very well managed and clean reserve. Beautiful and great fun to listen to nature’s noises! Takes around 2 hours to do the moderately difficult trail. Only downside is that there are no cafes or restaurants to finish off the trail. Otherwise a must visit and...More

Steep slope on the main route at first but it gets easier. We didn’t take the stairs to the top. Disappointed with no view from top. Good to walk in the jungle away from all the high rise. Easy access from Beauty World MRT.

Started my training at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve in preparation for more challenging hikes at overseas mountainous regions. The area was an excellent practicing ground especially for amateurs like me. Well-maintained amenities like toilets, water points and vending machines filled with thirst quenching isotonic drinks....More

Decided to spend some time walking up the Bukit Timah Hill. It’s a really enjoyable walk up. Nearest MRT will be beauty world station. Just remember not to feed the monkey 🐒 if you see them.

Went with my 9-year-old nephew on a Saturday morning. Good hike and we took the yellow route to the summit. Did not see any wildlife maybe because the place was crowded on a weekend. I just wish people would observe proper ethics while hiking. I...More

It has many side routes and map shows clearly where you are stands don't worry about being lost. Many hikers, families, even trail running are here. Nice for 2 hours you can do it all. You will see some lizards or monkey, butterflies, many species...More

Take the original route from Hindhede Drive (Off Upper Bukit Timah Road). Most of the walking will be on slope. The first will be the steepest. Overcome it the rest should be fine. After the first slope will be a little rest... More
