5 Hiking Trails in Singapore

Hiking is one of Singaporeans’ favourite weekend pastimes. You get to take in the scenic views of Singapore while breathing in the crisp fresh air — what’s not to love? Plus, these hiking trails help clock in a considerable number of steps. Did you know that 10,000 steps are equivalent to 8km or an hour and 40 minutes of walking? That’s easily attainable in many of these hikes. 

That being said, it’s important to know your limits and not overexert yourself. 

To help you decide which hiking trail is the most suitable for you and your family, here are five hiking trails in Singapore with varying difficulty levels and lengths: 

1. MacRitchie Reservoir Park

This hiking trail is long and can get difficult in some parts, so if you love a challenge, the MacRitchie Reservoir Park would be a perfect choice for you. Don’t forget to snap an Instagram picture on the iconic HSBC TreeTop Walk as you clock in your steps.

Located atop a hill, Fort Canning Park is an iconic hiking trail brimming with history, stories and adventure. Many know of this place as where Singapore surrendered to the Japanese in 1942, but today, Fort Canning Park sees much happier events such as celebrations, concerts and even weddings. Boasting nine beautiful historical gardens and a variety of different trails allowing enthusiastic hikers to explore the hill in their own way, Fort Canning Park is the perfect hiking trail for friends and family who want to learn more about Singapore.
