    The link to the highres map appears to be broken now. 🙁

    Recently, I noticed that pet owners are not leashing their dogs while using the trail. This will deter others from using the trail as those who are scared of dogs, will not want to take the risk of a dog bite. I hope the authorities will look into this matter. I believe serious dog bites will occur and is a matter of time.

    Recently, I have been chased by a dog while cycling. This incident took place between holland to bukit timah trail path.

      The dog owners who walk their dogs off leash would not do so if the dogs were at all aggressive. This is a fact. You are at NO risk of a dog bite just because some family dogs are able to enjoy a bit of free roam on the green corridor. Seriously, grow a pair.

    Please advise what is the distance from Bt Timah Station to Tanjong Pagar.
    I assume one can walk till Tanjong Pagar and if so, how would one leave the station?

    Did a bit of walking around here recently, and found some good access points. My suggestions would be:

    1: From Holland Road, take Bukit Sepdap Rd (opposite Jelita Cold Storage). Just before the first house ont eh left, there’s a path down the side. This path goes down to the level of the railway and provide easy access for walkers and bikers.

    2: At Bukit Timah Road, take Rifle Range Road which runs parallel to the railway at the same level for 500m or so. Plenty of access easy points for bikes and walkers.

    3: Just south of Rail Mall, there are two access points. One is steep and next to the side of the bridge over Upper Bukit Timah road, and has a concrete ramp and then a short scramble over stones by the tracks. The second option is easier but more muddy, about 50m further south as you follow the tracks.

    4: At Hillview Road, the bridge over the road is no longer there. I’ve only accessed the southern part of the track, the best is to one side (nearer Hillview Ave rather than Upp Bk Timah Rd) where a short mud slope gives you easy access.

    I will explore more and head north from Hillview Road soon!

      We had tried cycling along the Railway track parallel to Rifle Range, but find it so muddy because of the recent rains. It is very unpleasant to walk or cycle there. I wonder if some temporary measure can be taken before the real development begin.

    I ran from Rail Mall to Buona Vista today, about 6km. It was beautiful, and very easy thanks to the new Downtown MRT line. I took Downtown MRT to Hillview, walked towards and past Rail Mall and then went up the little hill to the left of the railway bridge crossing the road. You can’t miss the bridge, and the access is perfect–nice and easy. From Hillview to the bridge is about 350 or 400 meters. You could park at the Rail Mall if you wanted to as well. Then I exited the corridor at Buona Vista where the Circle Line and East West MRT lines are conveniently located. So there you have it–easy access, one way with MRT stations at both ends, and parking. The exit up to the MRT is on the right side after you go under the bridge for N. Buona Vista Road.

    I’m just a tourist but I appreciate this website for helping me find this beautiful place to run and thought I would give something back. I hope nobody minds that I’ve posted the same thing on all three relevant sections. Cheers!
