It is time for the BIG WALK once again. This walk will start at Mac Ritchie Reservoir Park, bring us through the Rifle Range stretch and up the Rifle Range Road, to the base of Bukit Timah Hill and up towards the summit of our highest peak covering approximately 10kms.
These are the objectives of the walk:
1. To be able to appreciate the diversity of life in a tropical rain forest.
2. To gain insights into how Earth is the sustainer of life.
3. To test our level of endurance in our climb towards the summit.
The following are some ways in which you can prepare yourself for the Big Walk:

The walk is expected to last for about 6 hours. It is important that we start early and to be personally prepared for the walk.
