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.

Wonderful morning walk through the macRitchie Reservior main entrance . Very beautiful waters views and greenery. Further into the trails will come into forested areas reminiscent of a virgin primary jungle. Be prepared with walking on muddy tracks especially after rainfalls. A walking stick will be useful.

I come to MacRitchie Nature Trail few time every year. It's a peaceful, nature rainforest. I come for a run which the whole loop takes around 12km. Treetop walk/bridge which is hanging above all the trees emergent layer is a must go but note that it closes at 5pm.

Had a bad start to the treetop walk as it is easy to get lost without a guide. Thankfully I met some nice locals who were walking up the trail as well. This is definitely not for the weak-hearts as it's spanning about 10-11 km. Do remember to go in the early morning as well as Singapore's weather is soooo... More

Always a nice park for a Sunday run or to bring visitors. Tree top walk is pretty cool, walk by the golf course with the monkeys too (I like to do it counter clockwise starting from the dam) Recommended

After my 11 year old decided that the family should go on a Mac Ritchie reservoir outing , the family got geared up in comfortable shoes and a few niknacks in the bag and got dropped off at Venus Drive. We wanted to go straight to the treetops as we entered the place pretty close to closing time that is... More

Unbelievable that such a lovely trail is there in the middle of Singapore. Great for a nice hike - connected to several other parks. If you're doing the Tree Top Walk, just be prepared for an almost endless set of stairs :-)

I've been to the mac Ritchie recently and I find it very adventure compare to Henderson wave when I been there .. although I felt very tired even on the half of the trail but it's a good walk for youngsters and I would recommend it to the elderly couples as I'm in a hospitality industry and I always have...

If you are up to a 10+km walk, MacRitchie is one of the many excellent offers in Singapor. Good height differences. Not too crowdes. Variating nature.

This was certainly an adventure and an opportunity to experience a different side of Singapore.  We asked our taxi driver to drop us off at the Venus Drive car park. It was our intention to walk to the tree top walkway. We started walking and heavens opened, not too bad initially but it then turned into the most intense rain... More
