Take a walk along nature trails and paths to discover the rich biodiversity of Singapore's green spaces.

Soak in Singapore's flora, fauna and scenic sights on foot at our parks. Choose from hiking trails with varying distances and difficulties to suit your needs.


If you are planning to organise group activities in our nature reserves and nature parks, you will need to apply for a permit.

Follow these dos and don'ts for an enjoyable experience for everyone:

  • Do stay on the designated trails. Do not walk on biking trails or into restricted areas.
  • Do not enter forested areas, including nature reserves and nature parks during and immediately after bad weather. Do check the weather forecast before your visit.
  • Do not approach or feed any wild animals. Find out what to do if you encounter monkeys, snakes, wild boars, otters and more.
  • Do not litter. Carry your litter with you and use designated litter bins.
  • Do observe all signs and information boards.

If you are hiking in nature reserves or nature parks, take note of these additional pointers:

  • Do not bring your pets, as they are not allowed in the nature reserve or nature park to protect the wildlife.
  • Do not carry food or plastic bags as that may attract monkeys, which have been conditioned to associate plastic bags with food. Refrain from bringing food or keep the food in your bag.
  • Do not remove any plants or animals from our nature reserves or nature parks, as they are protected.
  • Do keep your volume down. Leave radios and sound systems at home.
  • Do take note of the opening and closing times of our nature reserves and nature parks, and plan to finish your hike during opening hours.

Make the most of your hike with these tips:

  • Wear waterproof, sun-protecting and comfortable clothing, including proper footwear. Choose clothes in neutral colours to blend in with the environment.
  • Familiarise yourself with the route you are planning to take and check the weather conditions beforehand. During inclement weather, seek cover at the nearest shelter.
  • Pack light, but remember to bring along drinking water, as well as binoculars to catch a closer look at wildlife.
  • Spray insect repellent before you enter nature reserves or nature parks.
  • Hydrate and rest when you need to.
  • Remain quiet to increase your chances of spotting forest animals. Loud voices and noises make it difficult to spot these elusive creatures.
