Hiking

Rifle Range Link: Hike between Rifle Range Road and Sime Track

While many often loop around the MacRitchie Reservoir, there is another less traveled route that crosses the central catchment area – Rifle Range Link.

Rifle Range Link connects a junction at Sime Track, not far from Jelutong Tower, to Rifle Range Road.

The route along Rifle Range Link can be divided into two sections.

The first section for those coming from the direction of TreeTop Walk or Golf Link is a trail from the Sime Track junction to a set of stairs.

It is a beautiful forest trail.

Dillenia Cabin

It takes you past the Dillenia Hut and a small water pond which is directly in front.

Along the route there is also a shallow forest stream with stepping stones you can use to cross it.

Eventually you will come to a staircase on the right.


Stairs to Rifle Range Road

Stairs to Rifle Range Road

From the stairs it is a gradual climb along Rifle Range Link to Rifle Range Road.

How to get to the Range Link

This area is quite straight and wider but there are sections where you have to be careful as the water has eroded parts of the path and created channels. Plus it can get a bit muddy too.

Eventually, once Rifle Range Link is complete, you’ll need to fight your way along Rifle Range Road to reach your next destination.

It is approximately 1.4 km from the Sime Track junction at Rifle Range Road along the Rifle Range Link. However, it may seem a bit longer as you will be moving on forest tracks and uphill.
