5 Places to Enjoy Nature Near Upper Bukit Timah

Upper Bukit Timah Botanic Gardens Eco Lake

Most Singaporeans don’t expect too many urban infrastructures and development in Upper Bukit Timah. If not for an MRT station under construction as of writing, Upper Bukit Timah is known to many for its amazing nature trails.

You won’t be trailblazing in Singapore’s biggest nature trail spanning multiple parks, but following the pre-navigated paths can give you the best weekend ever.

Here are five places you can enjoy nature near Upper Bukit Timah.

  1. Kampong Trail

In Kampong Trail, you’re going to start feeling that the glitz and glamorous Singapore urbanity you’ve known has finally disappeared and been replaced by long trailing forestry. In hindsight, it’s something you can say for all the nature parks you’re about to find in this list.

Kampong Trail connects Bukit Timah Nature Reserve to Chestnut Nature Park. If you’re up for more than 16km walking, you can even reach MacRitchie Reservoir.

Address: Hindhede Drive

Hours: 7AM – 7PM

  1. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

The first thing you’ll notice about Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is the high mountain peak visible from the entrance. That thing has a peak of 163m, making it high and enjoyable enough for a weekend hike-climb.

Each time Singapore’s government renovates and enhances Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, its trails continue to entice nature lovers across the country because it remains lush, fresh, and the old trails are still open for anyone to traverse.

Address: Hindhede Drive

Hours: 7AM – 7PM

Hindhede Nature Park

  1. Hindhede Nature Park

An endless flight of stairs isn’t exactly appealing to anyone, especially if you’re bringing kids along for your weekend trip. Hindhede Nature Park is the best alternative because it’s a long, trailing walk that requires less legwork and more nature appreciation.

Plus, kids will love seeing trampolines, swings, and mini-ziplines scattered throughout the park. You can also see Hindhede Quarry from the trail, one of its most popular selfie-taking spots.

Address: Hindhede Drive

Hours: 7AM – 7PM

  1. Chestnut Nature Park

Mountain biking is a great pastime for Singaporeans and foreigners. However, most Upper Bukit Timah trails do not separate bikers and hikers, making hikers wary about zooming bikers from behind.

Aside from its glorious forestry, which is the home of several endangered animal species worldwide, you have a trail that separates bikers from hikers, allowing you to enjoy everything without having to watch your back.

Address: Hindhede Drive

Hours: 7AM – 7PM

  1. Dairy Farm Nature Park

This trail is much more popular for photographers than Bukit Timah Nature Reserve because its better nature “curb appeal” is easy to frame. You can have an excellent jungle experience without the risk of running into wild animals. Still, it’s home to many flora and fauna of notable species.

Lastly, you’ll always walk straight towards the scenic Singapore Quarry, whose appeal and appearance are always great backdrops for a remembrance photo of your happy weekend.

Address: Hindhede Drive

Hours: 7AM – 7PM
