    I think it starts near the new ranger station in MacRitchie and leads up to Pierce Hill (near SICC - Island Club Course).
    I was on Pierce Hill last weekend. The construction still got a long way to go.

    Scary? You are kidding right? God knows what would happen if you went near a croc then.

    the tree top walk is situated in macritchie nature reserve, linking bukit peirce and bukit kallang. it is expected to be completed soon. as a member of the project team, i can assure you that you will get a great view of the tree canopy as you walk across the bridge. it may be a bit scary for people who are very afraid of heights, but hopefully it should be a fun experience for most people.

    Don't forget the 25-person limit on the bridge. The rangers are gonna have their hands full implementing this "rule".

    the tree top walk at Kent Ridge is already finished. Although I must say the view is not spectecular but you do get views of birds up close IF you are lucky.

    Default Opening times and Monday is not opened

    Beautiful day and went to the Tree Top Bridge. Found that there is a opening time and closing time! See the link below.

    Monday is Maintenance Day - so probably not open for public as well.

    I park at Venus Drive off Upper Thomson Road and walk up the road that leads to SICC. Good signage and you should not get lost too easily.

    NParks has revised it to maximum 30 persons now. Why'd you think there are rangers controlling the flow/numbers and there is a opening/closing hour? Putting signs will not always work in Singapore.

    Anyway, if you want the official info, read about the Treetop Walk and the 30-person limit on the NParks Website here

    How many people can the HSBC TTW accommodate?
    For the comfort and enjoyment of all visitors, we will be restricting visitor numbers to 30 pax at any one time as well as visitor flow. The traffic along the walkway is one-way. Therefore, visitors will enter via the ranger post at Bukit Peirce and exit at Bukit Kalang and continue on to the Petaling Trail.

    Thanks for the info. I've been there before and there was very long queue when I reached there after walking 4km. Gave up waiting and went back.

    Whoa. You should have waited leh... wasted all the effort walking all the way there. You parked at Venus Drive? Or came from MacRitchie?

    Once the school hols are over, there should be fewer people there.

    The crowd was not so bad today. I reached there at around 1.30pm and there was no queue. Did a slow lah lah walk across the bridge with my 2++ years old kid, no problem at all.
    On the way up at noon, I did see quite a bit more number of people returning from their morning walk though. But it was not a serious crowd.
    I think it is ok to go any time now. There is a nice ranger station near the bridge. You can stop there for a toilet break and for topping up the water from the cooler - esp if you have kids.
    If you drive there with small children, it may be clever to drive all the way up to the beginning of the entrance road just before the SICC club, drop the kids and then double back to the Venus Drive carpark 1 km away. It will save the kids some walking.
    Do not park on the side of the road, the TP are often tipped off and they come with tow-trucks. I heard this from the SICC security guard. So beware.
