MacRitchie Nature Trail and Reservoir Park Tours

MacRitchie Nature Trail and Reservoir Park
Located in MacRitchie Reservoir Park, the MacRitchie Nature Trail encompasses a series of boardwalks and hiking paths between 2 and 7 miles (3 and 11 kilometers) long that wind throughout the tropical rainforest. The TreeTop Walk, one of the park's main draws, is a suspension bridge walking trail high up in the trees. Walking the 82-foot (25-meter) high, 820-foot (250-meter) long trail provides a bird’s-eye view of the forest below. There’s more to Singapore than its high-rise cityscape, and the MacRitchie TreeTop Walk is proof.
The Basics
The TreeTop Walk connects the two highest points within the MacRitchie forest: Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang. The narrow bridge walkway can support 30 walkers at a time, but foot traffic is one-way, so once you begin, you have to finish. The walkway allows visitors to walk through the park without disturbing the flora and fauna in the forest below. Most travelers visit independently, and combine the walk with other forest hikes.
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The TreeTop Walk is free.
  • It’s a moderately challenging trail, best suited to active travelers.
  • Bring sunscreen, insect repellant, and plenty of water.
  • Color-coded signs in English indicate trail length and difficulty, making it easy to navigate the park even for first timers. 
  • If you get hungry, there's a cafe inside the visitor's center, as well as restrooms and a place to pick up more information on the park.
  • Many macaque monkeys live in the forest and park. Visitors should not feed or tease them, and trash should be disposed of properly to avoid attracting them.
How to Get There

The best way to get to the park is by MRT. Take the Circle Line to Caldecott MRT; from there it’s a 10-minute walk. The walkway is 2.7 miles (4.5 kilometers) from the MacRitchie Reservoir Park entrance, and 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) from the parking lot at Venus Drive. Therefore, visitors should come prepared for a few hours of walking.
When to Get There
The walkway is popular among locals, so it can get crowded Saturday and Sunday. It’s usually closed Monday unless it’s a public holiday. Opening hours are 8:30am to 5pm. Singapore is a very hot and humid country, so travelers who find the heat uncomfortable may want to avoid doing this walk in the middle of the day.
Visit the MacRitchie Reservoir Park

The MacRitchie Reservoir Park is connected to the part of the forest where the walkway is located. The MacRitchie Reservoir is the oldest reservoir in Singapore, and there are many walking and hiking trails throughout the surrounding park, as well as kayaking, bird watching, and occasional events at the MacRitchie Bandstand.
