Marang Trail extends from Marang Road, just behind the Harbourfront MRT Station to the top of Mount Faber. Mount Faber is the second highest hill in Singapore at 105 metres above mean sea level.

If you are physically fit, it should be a piece of cake embarking on this walk of steps and shaded footpaths paving the way to beautiful sights and sounds of the secondary forest. Proper footware is recommended. Marang Trail covers an elevation of 70 metres (or the equivalent of a 24-storey building).

This trail is less than a kilometre and should take you about 15 minutes to reach the summit. This trail may not be suitable for young children, the elderly and the less fit. The Marang Trail is deliberately unlit after dark to minimize disturbance to nocturnal life in the forest. Do bring along a torch and take extra precautions if you wish to walk on this trail after dark.

Tours: No tour. Some common tree species you can see on this trail are: Angsana tree; Saga Tree (its seeds are commonly picked and used in jewellery and artwork; popular for their bright red coloour that symbolizes passion and everlasting love); Shrubs, plants, climbers and flowers like the Bat lily, ground orchids and Crape ginger.

History: The Marang Trail obtained its name from the Marang fruit, more commonly known as Johey Oak (Artocarpus odoratissimus), a tree related to Jackfruit, Cempedak, and Breadfruit.
