  • The trails were still closed but the path to the summit is open. We were on a 7km quick run from Bukit Batok reserves and made a quick dash up the summit. Nice views at the summit and water hole half ...  read more »
  • It's closed for renovation until end of 2016 much to our annoyance having cycled all the way there. I'm sure the improvements are going to be great but for now, forget it 
  • Arrived here by bus. Saw a chipmunk within a few metres. Toilets and water at the beginning. Steep hills but well worth it. Saw monkeys in their natural environment. Great. 
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Hike on Singapore's highest hill thanks to several trails in the reserve. Take a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city in the tropical rainforest here. The reserve is currently under renovation works.
  • There is a paved route straight to the summit and a network of trails that branch off from that route. A mountain biking trail also encircles the hill. Dairy Farm Quarry to the rear of the hill is definitely worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare. Alternatively, drive straight to the carpark at the rear of the reserve and walk five minutes to the Quarry.
  • Beautiful park. If you like jogging / walking it is for you. No special events
