  • Really great part of the HortPark to Mt Faber connection. You walk above the trees or amidst the trees, with many shaded sections. Serene in many parts, and very little reminder of the roads and...  more »
  • It will take about 45 minutes to an hour to hike the whole route. Fresh air, greenery and if you would like, you can take a break at Gillman Barracks where there are food, drink and dessert options  more »

Message from Singapore Tourism Board
A trek along The Southern Ridges brings visitors to five other parks - Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and the Labrador Nature Reserve. Spread over 10km of green and open spaces, a hike through The Southern Ridges takes visitors to five local parks which are linked by park connectors. As part of the journey, travellers cross bridges through the Adinandra Belukar, a distinct secondary forest, and can observe a variety of birds. Henderson Waves is another highlight of the walk. Its Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge is a marvel during nightfall - it is illuminated with LED lighting. Trekkers can enjoy panoramic views of lush greenery, sights and sounds of wildlife.
