If you are into light hiking like me, try this forest walk. It is one of the series of intersecting trails in Southern Ridges. My 9y/o girl loved it!
Can you spot my daughter?
*The Forest Walk meanders through some 50 metres through the secondary forest of Telok Blangah Hill and connects to Alexandra Arch.
Fellows who doesn't mind walking under the sun like us.
*There are two trails on the Forest Walk (just cross over from Carpark 3 to get on either trail) – the Elevated Walkway and the Earth trail.
Whoever thought of building this metal bridge, what an awesome job!
*The Elevated Walkway, accessed by the metal bridge, offers you the experience of walking through the secondary forest of Telok Blangah Hill at eye-level with the forest canopy. This is an excellent platform for spotting birds, dragonflies and butterflies. While on the Elevated Walkway, keep a lookout for a concrete slope. Due to continuous heavy downpour, a landslide occurred on the slope in Oct 2011. For the safety of visitors, the slope has been stabilised with concrete to prevent further erosion.
Can you spot the Earth Trail below? We plan to try it next visit.
*If you prefer a more rugged experience and hanker after a closer experience with wildlife in the area, embark on the Earth Trail. Steps have been built at some parts of the trail in view of the steep terrain.
The dense secondary forest found here, the Adinandra Belukar, is home to Singapore’s rich biodiversity.
