    Board SMRT Bus 925 from Kranji MRT Station. Alight at Kranji Reservoir Carpark and walk across the road to the entrance of the trail. It takes an approximate 30-mins walk to the Reserve.

    Route 1 - Enjoy the tranquility and the serenity of the mangrove habitat. The route circles two main ponds and passes the Aquatic Plant Pond where you can see a good collection of aquatic plants. The route is approximately 3 km and takes 1-2 hr walk.
    Facilities
    Observation hides: Good spotting areas for bird-watching during migratory seasons. Also serves as a resting area.
    Screens: Located along the trails to allow visitors to peer through the peep-holes to spot animals.
    Aerie: An 18-m tall tower hide that offers panoramic view of the wetland reserve.
    Platforms: A scenic look-out point that also serves as a resting and picnic spot.
    Sluice gates: Control the flow of water in and out of the pond.

    Route 2 - Let the longest boardwalk bring you through the mangrove arboretum. This route leads you to the tower hide and the prawn pond where traditional prawn harvesting demonstration takes place. The route is approximately 5 km and takes 2-3 hr walk.
    Facilities
    Observation hides: Good spotting areas for bird-watching during migratory seasons. Also serves as a resting area.
    Screens: Located along the trails to allow visitors to peer through the peep-holes to spot animals.
    Tower hide: Climb up this tower for a panoramic view of the reserve.
    Boardwalk: Come on board the longest boardwalk of the reserve. This 575 meters raised walkway is a link to bring you from route 1 to route 3 while immersing you in the mangrove habitat.
    Sluice gates: Control the flow of water in and out of the pond.

    Route 3 - The inhabitants of the freshwater habitat await your visit. Look out for the nesting Baya Weaver and common waterbirds like the Bittern, White-breasted Waterhen and White Brow Crake. The route is approximately 7 km and takes 4-5 hr walk.

    If you go on 17/2, the bus #925 goes all the way to just outside the lane leading to the SBWR entrance. This bus service goes there on Sundays and public holidays. On other days (including Saturdays), you would need to alight at the Kranji Reservoir carpark as you described.

    And if you go early (<0730hrs), the entry fee is even waived. Realy early bird catches the worm !
