MacRitchie - Bukit Timah briskwalks: Sun 4th & 18th June 2006

Category : events

Sunrise in MacRitchie and breakfast in Bukit Timah!

The Raffles Museum Toddycats lead an energetic briskwalk for the public from MacRitchie (MR) to Bukit Timah (BT) annually in June. All are welcome and you can register for the walks on 4th and 18th June 2006 at the MR-BT Briskwalk webpage.

This is an opportunity to learn a clearly marked route from MacRitchie to Bukit Timah in the company of friendly guides, and perhaps encourage you to take up such walks on your own.

The 2-hour walk is a chance to experience the ambience of the morning's sounds and fresh smells and a beautiful sunrise. Led by a group of regular walkers on these trails, this walk is unusual for us as it is not a nature observation walk (which is a much longer walk), but rather, a chance to exercise amidst a pleasant, natural setting that we treasure in Singapore.

Everyone is welcome, but you should be used to taking short walks at least and wear a proper pair of walking shoes. And, critically, be able to wake up early enough to reach MacRitchie carpark at 6.45am, since we leave on time! We hope to reach the foot of Bukit Timah hill by 9.30am, leaving you rejuvenated with your whole Sunday still ahead of you.

Visit the webpage for details about the route, preparation, trail etiquette and photos from previous walks.
