Trail Recce

another recce day. The second one to check on how feasible a MTB trail can be made.

Alvin, Max, Moneru and me take a hike and trek around, checking the area for trail lining, erosion, flora and water bogs.

Is interesting to walk in this very part of Singapore, unreal.

Kent Ridge Park being a secondary forest get a tall canopy. The low lying area is totally bare of plants. An occasional bush here, lots of fallen trunk here and there, thick mossy bottom layer, thick pile of leaves and vines.

A 4 hours hike we had.

Kent Ridge walk about

Deep inside the rarely walk area of Kent Ridge Park, is the whole North Shore like wooded area, with widely planted trees, certainly a secondary jungle.

Max and me took the chance to walk the park with Alvin from Nparks, for a site recce on possibility of getting a riding trail up.

The place is hilly, gulley filled, very open under the tall 6-8metres tree canopy. A perfect place to run a trail weaving around the trees, allowing riders and people to witness the nature close up with minimal distruption.

A certainly thrilling walk, and indeed a long one.
