One of the first forest reserves to be established in Singapore and spanning over 163 hectares, this rather steep trail will require around an hour or two of your time to complete. However, it will surely be made worthwhile as this reserve is home to over 40% of our nation’s native flora and fauna and contains elusive wildlife that you might just spot if you keep an eye out! Enjoy this trail with your kids and expose them to Mother Nature amidst our bustling city lives. For cycling enthusiasts who prefer a little challenge, check out their special mountain bike trail!
