The TreeTop Walk (TTW) is the highlight of several long hiking routes in MacRitchie that brings you through the different stages of a mature secondary forest. The first of its kind in Singapore and in the region, this free-standing suspension bridge connects the two highest points (Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang) in MacRitchie and offers a bird's eye view of the community of plants and animals that live in the forest canopy. The total length of the walkway is about 250 m and its height from the forest floor varies, with the highest point at 25 m.
Besides providing another avenue for nature recreation for Singaporeans, the TTW also plays an important role in forest canopy research, an area many researchers were not able to get into because of lack of access. This bridge will help to facilitate surveys and plant identification work and further our understanding of how forest ecosystems work.
The distance to the entrance of the TreeTop Walk is approximately 4.5 km (1.5 - 2 hour walk) from the Macritchie Reservoir Park and 2.5 km (45 mins - 1 hr walk) from the car park at Venus Drive. Therefore, a round trip including the TreeTop Walk is about 7 km to 10 km (3-5 hours depending on your walking pace).
Please note that the walkway only allows for one-direction traffic. The entrance to the bridge is from the Ranger Station via Peirce track.
