I like Hindhede Quarry best of the three. Not only is it the most picturesque, but the trail to it is also the most interesting. We walked to it from the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve Visitor Centre via a wooden bridge path that wound along beautiful tall trees; and walked away from it using a short but exciting jungle trail that led straight down to the Nature Reserve car park.
The Hindhede Nature Park was officially opened in 2001 by then Minister of National Development Mr Mah Bow Tan. The literature at the park states that the rock surface surrounding the quarry was crystallized from magma beneath the Earth's surface some 200 million years ago.
When quarrying operations ceased there in the late 1980s, the quarry pit was believed to be 18m below sea level with a surface area of 30,500m². Because of the impermeable nature of the granite formation, the water from rain and surface eventually filled the pit to become the beautiful quarry we see today. Do come here to enjoy the view and do not miss it!
