We have considerately included the difficulty level of each trail too
Nature and all its lush greenery may not be Singapore’s forte. However, we do still boast several parks and reserves for those looking to be one with nature. So instead of falling prey to mind-numbing gadgets, why not put in a bit of activity into your sedentary lifestyle by lacing-up for these trails we have in Singapore? Aside from it being quite an intensive workout, trekking these trails also make for a fantastic activity to do together with your friends and family.
So here are 20 of these trails you can consider embarking on:

1. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (BTNR)
Towering at 163m, Bukit Timah Hill is Singapore’s highest nature landmark and the closest the nation has to a ‘mountain’. Nonetheless, with its diverse biodiversity and being one of the few places remaining in Singapore to still have areas of primary rainforests, it is the closest you can get to untouched nature. After a two-year revamp that concluded in 2016, trails in BTNR boast a non-slip, erosion-resistant surface that makes a safer and easier trek. Wooden boardwalks have also been installed so visitors will be able to access treks without harming the surrounding flora and fauna.
