My favourite trail at MacRitchie Reservoir has got to be the one to TreeTop Walk. Getting there and starting from the correct end of the park is what one needs to take note of. The walkway is one-direction traffic and the entrance is via Peirce track, from the Ranger Station.
The TreeTop Walk is accessible from Venus Drive and it is about 2.5km *45 minutes to 1 hour walk) and a round trip including the walk through the bridge and the steps leading to it is about 7km to 10km (3 to 5 hours depending on your pace). You may also take a longer walk through the park from MacRitchie Reservoir Park which is about 4.5km (1.5 to 2 hours) one way.
Time yourself well to reach the TreeTop Walk before 4:30pm as the gate closes at 5pm and rangers will not allow visitors through from 4:45pm onwards.
The bridge is open from Tuesdays to Fridays 9am to 5pm, weekends and Public Holidays from 8:30am to 5pm. The bridge is closed on Mondays, except when it is a PH, for maintenance.
We made a beeline for the bridge when we arrived at Venus Drive. The trails are well-travelled and it’s an easy walk to the bridge. We went through the park and walked around the boardwalk to the main entrance of MacRitchie Reservoir.
