    Bukit Timah is the tallest hill in Singapore, standing at 163 m. Yes, 163 m. It’s not a typo.

    The Bukit Timah Nature Park is a recreational park with paved trails and steps , suitable for all ages.

    To get the minimum workout, you need to do at least a complete loop. If you are training for a hike outside Singapore, you need to complete the loop many times over.

    The nature park does get crowded on Saturday and Sunday. The narrow trails tend to get congested, making it difficult for speed hikes.

    My fav trail is to take the Taban loop followed by the Cave Path. Takes less than an hour including breaks. Lots of up and down stairs to give you a good exercise of moderate intensity. Interesting sights along the way, such as caves and streams.

    Cave Path leads to the main road. If you still feel energetic, hike up to the summit. Otherwise, go downhill back to visitor centre or car park.

    Tallest in Singapore. There’s a steep slope entering the reserve, after that the steepness is quite manageable for beginner. Unlike other nature reserve in Singapore, Bukit Timah has moderate and difficult route for hikers. Basically the moderate route is achievable for people that do not exercise much.

    It’s cooling and shady even in the afternoon.

    A lot of information is displayed about the history and significance of the nature reserve. It also has a map of the entire nature reserve and it is rather secluded and there is rarely anyone here. It is located on the second floor of the centre and well hidden. Overall a good place to learn things

    Great place to escape from the city. Enough trails to keep both the novice and the expert busy. Good signage. The trails are perhaps becoming too sanitised, with many concrete steps where there were natural trails before. While safer, takes some of the fun out of hiking. Apartment blocks have enough concrete steps if one wanted to climb!

    Nice quiet cool place to hike. Lot of shedded area even during weekend lunch noon time.
    Lot of visitors too since morning till lunch time.
    Not that difficult to get up to the summit even for a 3 years old kid.
    Can see butterfly and spider even squirrel too.
    Our kids love the trip very much.
    Some trails having steeper slope but still manageable.
    Didn’t bitten by any mosquito, seems not present.
    Carpark was closed, seems limited slot too.
    We went to train track to have a short train track and muddy trails walk.
    The whole summit trip was just within 1hour, nice.

    Very well maintain park, good for family and friends outing, can be crowded on weekend, free to public, and accessible by MRT Beauty World and buses.

    Offer good and challenging routes to polish your trekking skills, is somewhat connected to Mc Ritchie, easy to navigate and has plenty of clear signages, please bring sufficient water supply during your hike to prevent dehydration.

    Be careful not to accidentally enter the mountain biking trail, there are few reported accidents before, and don’t feed the monkeys.

    It’s been half a century since I was last here at Bukit Timah Hill as it was known then. Surprises, no more working granite quarry mining. All the tracking path are there, including the one that is shared for mountain biking. Do take caution when you’re tracking this shared path. Over the decades NParks have maintain this Nature Reserve well. School children, tourists and your average Joe leisurely enjoying nature away from city life for a few hours. During the 2nd World War, Bukit Timah, Adam Road, Sunset Way and Bukit Batok saw the fiercest defence by our local heroes of all races. A piece of history and nostalgia filled my senses. Yes, do stop to enjoy the rare plants, trees and gigantic insects abound. There’s a public toilet and refreshments at the visitors centre. Enjoy!

    2. Haha… It’s never got with the shade provided.

    Cons: (just personal suggestion)
    1. May need a better exit for Route 4. I was so light headed half way but the exit(via the way I come from) has so many stairs… I forced myself to complete the route My concern is for the first timer goer be it the young or the old.
    2. Can we have a water cooler at the summit. Haha

    I visited early in the morning at 8am and it was already starting to get busy. I went with a group of locals which made it more fun. We went to the summit via the south view trail. It was not too strenuous. There are so longer trails off of the catchment path. Lots of wildlife and plants to see. I was lucky to see a forest glider and a monkey. Next to the park is a boardwalk to the quarry which is beautiful as well.

    Good way to burn some fats. Since we can’t fly out, I guess Singaporean are looking for ways to burn weekends too. During Covid period, the park also observe safe distancing and prevents over crowding. They restrict people from entering the park in the morning. So u have to go really early or risk being turn away..

    After a heavy rain in the morning, there were less cars and hikers, even though it was a Saturday, but the air was certainly fresher after a thundery shower! Enjoyed the 1.5hr hike before the sun came out and more hikers started to appear…

    One of my favourite hiking spot. The nature reserve have different paths with different levels of difficulty. It is well-connected to other nature reserves such as Macritchie (central catchment) or to Dairy Farm, Chestnut nature reserve, and to Mandai as well

    A tourist hot-spot! Do remember to leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs

    One of the best places for a good hike and exercise in Singapore, with trails of varying degrees and intensity.

    There is a vending machine at visitor center for you to purchase drinks.

    This is very bad place for carpark space, especially during weekends and PH. Very small cafe park and the residents of the private housing around the carpark are very unfriendly to public. The nature reserve itself is very good.

    It’s not too far only 1.2km from visitor center but it’s like the center of few parks (bukit batok nature park, dairy farm park, hindhede park,etc.). The climb is steep and sometime you can run into group of monkeys or wild boar. But overall it is still not a bad choice if you looking out for some workout together with friends.

    After the walk, you can either continue a close to 1km walk to the rail mall via green corridor or just cross the street and enjoy some traditional hawker food at beauty world shopping center or Chun Tin road restaurants. Good family bonding time.

    First stretch of the climb up is tough. Subsequently is a gentle uphill walk. Need to be careful and slow when going back downhill as the slope at the starting point is steep.

    Bukit Timah Nature Reserve has the tallest hill in Singapore, there are roads to climb up and also hiking trails. One can choose the difficulty level and follow the path. It is the best place to be when it rains.

    I love this nature reserve in this small country . It is a popular places for locals and foreigners to explore the nature site in Singapore and get some legs workout by climbing 200++ staircase up to the hill. There is option route if you are not keen on climbing. It’s a good training path for people who plan to go for hiking trip. Absolutely safe place if you are alone. Be aware the park is closed by 7pm .

    Great nature walk up the summit. Steep at the beginning but easier once crossed the first hut. 17 min to reach via the shortcut. About the same timing walking down the long path. Been a while since i walked for a bit. Feels good to always exercise a bit. Hope i can do this more often. Carpark is right at the foot of the hill. There’s also a wrll maintained public toilet nearby.

    If you can’t go any country, try here! Surrounded by nature, fresh air and get yourself refreshed after walk for an hour or two! Trees around, you hardly get sunlight blasted most of the time.

    Entrance to Bukit Timah Hill the tallest part of Singapore. This is where there are paid parking lots, clean toilets and water coolers.

    There are lots of wild (modern) monkeys which you need to be careful of. Keep all plastic bags away because some will attempt to snatch them as they assume that plastic bags contain food.

    *Getting there*. Use Downtown Line or the various bus services as shown in one of the images here. Best to begin walk between 7AM and 9AM.
    *What-to-do there*. Put your mobile phone away and enjoy the natural environment here. Sweat it up with a fast pace up the tarmac or take any of the off-road trails. Best to spend at least 2 hours.
    *Leaving there*. At the exit, walk up and across the overhead bridge and head towards Cheong Chin Nam Road. Walk down this road towards the end to enter into Beauty World station. Use the underpass to get over to Beauty World Plaza, Beauty World Centre, Bukit Timah Shopping Centre or best of all, the Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre for a late breakfast. Best time, I should say is 11AM. Botanical Gardens, McRitchie Reservoir, the various connector parks make sunny but urban Singapore still green enough for some hiking workout.

    Nice place for training, hiking or just a casual walk. Chances are you are going to encounter a few monkeys, turtles, lizards, and even snakes if you’re lucky. They have a nice interpretation center where you can learn about Singapore fauna and flora. For the more daring ones you can complete the loop and finish on the other side at Dairy Farm but do know that the stairs are not the usual steps and there is quite a few of them too. Just go slowly and enjoy the outdoor!

    There are few trails in it. Shortest from the visitor centre to summit is about 20 minutes. Another more tough trail about 1 hour with steep staircase. Very good for hiking training. Weekend is very crowded either you come early before 7am or aftee 10am, else couldn’t get a parking lot. Unless park at Beauty world center. There is a shortage here, no shower facilities at the visitor centre toilets. There are machines selling drink, accessories & snack.

    It was an easy hike via the tarmac trail, only 163m height. Can accomplish in less than 30mins even slow walk.
    A bit steep at the beginning which will require some endurance, probably 500m distance. Last stage to the summit was stairs about 200m.
    There are other side trails that you can divert for longer hikes.
    Overall good for beginners but definitely not challenging.
