Briskwalks: Sundays in June
Hike with the Habitat Group's Briskwalk Club, 6.45am - 9am
Route & Approximate timings
We will begin with a short briefing at the reservoir edge to introduce your guides, provide route information, explain safety measures and explain trail etiquette.
We will take approximately two hours to reach the summit of Bukit Timah hill:
I. Lornie trail
- Jelutong Bridge (25-35mins):
From here the trail heads into the margin of the golf course, towards a road called Golf Link, with some of the loveliest views of the water. We will reach Jelutong Tower.
The turn off for the main group heading towards Bukit Timah is just a few steps past the tower, along the trail marked Rifle Range Link.
II. SICC --> Central
Catchment Area --> Rifle Range Road (30-45 mins)
III. Rifle Range
Road --> Entrance of Catchment Path (19-25mins)
You will walk along the short grass and after a second slope, you will reach the entrance of the Catchment Path, next to several circular exposed pipeline access points.
IV. Catchment Path --> Summit of Bukit Timah Hill (20-30 mins)
This just goes up, up, up - new concrete steps were put in (May 2002) and you have a good grip all the way up to Catchment Hut where you will begin to see many old trunks of Shorea curtisii along the path. It's not over yet though, and after a short walk past another junction, you will reach the road to the summit. Turn right and around the corner, 103 steps greet you! These will get you to the Police Repeater Station on the summit. And after a short break, we walk slowly down the steep road to the Visitor Centre. It shoud be between 9.00 - 9.30am and its a morning well spent!
