  • Starts off with a steep gradient slope initially. Then plateaus off for an easier stretch before the final climb up a 200m ladder of steep steps that will test your quads! The summit is pleasant and cool in the shade. The hubris surrounding this hill is well deserved.
  • Favourite Great MTB Trails for more advance riders
  • One of the largest and oldest nature reserves in Singapore, also boasting the highest hill in Singapore. This is a place if you want to be one with nature. Wanting more excitement! There's a mountain biking trail which will put your physical prowess to the test!
  • Informative place to walk and bring kids there. Just reopened after a long time renovation.
  • Favorite place to exercise and to train for hiking. Watch out for the monkeys, they will snatch your bread or banana from behind
