How far? The Rail Corridor covers about 24km, but the central stretch, which recently reopened, is about 4km-long.
How long will it take? Depends on the route you choose as there are many things to do and see along the way.
Why go? Besides its lush natural landscapes, the Rail Corridor is also known for its rich heritage. The railway line was used for commuting and transporting goods between Singapore and Malaysia from the beginning of the 20th century until 2011. And now it has been enhanced for easy access. Look forward to the sensitive restoration of landmarks like the Bukit Timah Railway Station and two steel truss railway bridges, lookout decks to soak up nature’s beauty, and paths to immerse in the rainforest experience.
What's there to see? Besides the Bukit Timah Railway Station and the truss railway bridges, you can also head to the nearby Singapore Quarry where you can spot rare birds, fishes, turtles and even monitor lizards if you're sharp. For more wildlife, trek down to Dairy Farm Nature Park, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, and Hindhede Nature Park. For those in the north, explore 21km of new trails stretching all the way from Kranji to Hillview MRT stations.
