Dairy Farm Loop

Route: From the car park be­side The Sal­va­tion Army through Bukit Timah Hill.

Du­ra­tion: 3 hours Dif­fi­culty: Plug in to “Firestarter” by The Prodigy when at­tempt­ing to scale the never-end­ing stair­case of doom.

Sights: Ex­plore the Sin­ga­pore and Dairy Farm quar­ries (they’re quite zen), be­fore head­ing to­wards Wal­lace Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre, where you can learn more about the chang­ing land­scapes of the area. The trail is paved with gravel, and will be­gin to show signs of treach­er­ous in­clines. You will then be lulled into com­pla­cency as the path me­an­ders along un­til a sign points you to­wards Dairy Farm Loop – with a warn­ing that this trail is not for the faint­hearted! Maybe don’t at­tempt this if you’re new to hik­ing, and be pre­pared to sweat buck­ets.
