  • Bukit Timah Mountain Bike Trail

    The Bukit Timah Mountain Biking Trail is the oldest mountain biking trail in Singapore and located at the peripheral of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and snakes around old granite quarries and secondary forest. This bike trail was first opened in 1997 and designated for mountain biking.

    The 7km mountain biking trail is an intermediate/advanced technical trail with Blue, Black and Double Black lines. It is an intense trail with many fast descents through rock gardens, rock drops, blind corners, sections with technical climbs that require riders to have a good level of fitness and technical skills to enjoy the ride. As this is not a beginners trail, riding within one’s ability is important and good practice.
