http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nature_central_hiking.asp

The Nparks website lists several nature reserves in Sg, and each reserve has it's own hiking trails.

The HSBC treetop walk is one I wld recommend. There are also many interesting trails ard the Lim Chu Kang military training grounds, but that's not exactly public access and u run the risk of being run over by Armoured Personnel Carriers.

Pulau Ubin is another interesting place to visit.

I am keen too, but usually can't get anyone to go with, or it's usually others prefer to go early in the morning or do a fast trek, which is not my cup of tea. :P

I suggest you can join the mailing list of SIngapore Adverturers Club, i am in their mailing list. SOmetimes they have free treks around SIngapore. Went once and is quite fun and you get to do it with many other like minded people as well :D
