Southern Ridges Walk (5 June 2008)
over-photographed... but still nice... :)
if u need advice on walking the whole route from end to end, u can email or msn me.. we did the 9km walk starting from Clementi Woods, got really lost somewhere in NUS literally going around in circles, then bounced down the whole winding length of South Buona Vista road, strolled through the picturesque Kent Ridge Park, had fun playing in the wonderfully manicured Hort Park, saw the often over-shadowed but nonetheless quite pretty Alexandra Arch Bridge, clanked the whole metallic length of the seemingly never-ending but supposedly only 2.4km canopy bridge called the Forest Walk (The forest walk consist of a series of interlinking grated steel walkways joined together to form a continuous linked hilltop walkway towering over the tree canopy tops), ending up at Telok Blangah Hill Park slightly past dusk, in time to witness the really-quite-beautiful Henderson Wave basking in the twilight, before charging through the rest of the walk (Marang Trail - basically a forest walk) in darkness using our headlamps, and eating dinner at VivoCity, some 5 hours later..
u can definitely do the walk at a much faster pace if you take less photographs and have less fun at Hort Park and don't stop to listen to the birds chirping in the trees.. but then, what's the point of doing the walk then?
this guy's blog has the description of the whole route and the sights along the way in quite an incredible amount of detail..
