Exploring the Southern Ridges Walking Trail


The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Kent Ridge Park end of the Southern Ridges walking trail. The Science Park bus stop on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (Google Map Directions) has the most frequent bus services, but the bus stop on (Google Map Directions) is closer to Kent Ridge Park. I finished Exit D of the HarbourFront MRT station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 7.7km (4.8mi) in about 3hr
  • Grade: Medium. Hilly in sections, especially the Marang Trail between Mount Faber Park the HarbourFront MRT Station. The paths are very well maintained and fully paved. It can get tough in the sunny sections due to the heat and humidity of Singapore.
  • Date Walked: 13th of September 2019

The Story

The Southern Ridges is one of my favourite urban hikes in Singapore. There is plenty to see including gardens, spectacular views, amazing pedestrian bridges and two brilliant treetop walkways.
