MacRitchie Nature Trail, Singapore Overview

Once in a while, we all need a quick getaway, an escape from the hustle bustle of our everyday lives, even if it is just for an hour or two. MacRitchie Nature Trail provides just the solace that you seek in a busy city like Singapore. Situated in MacRitchie Reservoir Park along Lornie Road since 1867, the lush nature trail is an escape to pristine waters and a dense, secondary forest in the heart of the city.

Encompassing a series of hiking paths and boardwalks ranging from three to eleven kilometres long, MacRitchie Reservoir Park is a popular spot for fitness enthusiasts and nature lovers. With canoes, kayaks, hiking trails, and sections designated for fishing, the spacious park is a storehouse of recreational activities. The wondrous MacRitchie Nature Trail is a stretch of dense, tropical rainforest which acts as the connecting link between the Singapore Island Country Club and the MacRitchie Reservoir Park. Indigenous foliage adorns the path while the beautiful trail is thronged by different animals such as the monitor lizards, macaque monkeys, flying lemurs, squirrels and owls. Along the trail are numerous signboards which carry information about the rainforest and also make sure you do not lose your way.

The glorious MacRitchie Nature Trail provides you with the opportunity to set out for one of the most beautiful walks that the contemporary city-state of Singapore has to offer. The scenic beauty, the chatter of monkeys, the occasional hoots of owls, and the melodious chirping of birds add to the charm of this tranquil trail.
