Summary:
Known as T15 to most riders in singapore, this trail has a healthy combination of fast downhills, technical climbs and singletracks. The trail consists mainly of rocky/muddy terrain due to the wet climate of singapore so a trip to T15 may become a really muddy affair. You may choose to enter from one of three entrances but choose wisely because different directions can mean a longer climb or downhill run.

The trail converges in the middle at an abandoned BMX jump course with 3 different routes. From this point you can either choose to do the downhill run (mud/grass), singletrack, rocky downhill or link up to the other section of the trail.

This trail is suitable for beginners and adept riders will have much fun negotiating the trails.

Recommended Route:
Start from Meeting point 4 entrance -> mid point (BMX jump) -> Mandai road entrance.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve trail

Summary:
no brake is needed indeed. It is so small that you finish before you start. don't fool yourself that there is anything call bike trail in this small island of nowhere. Pack the bike, head north, experience real trail and biking. singipore is only good when you rtn to polish the bike.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
PIE, AYE, CTE etc etc, at least you can cycle around the island pretending

Summary:
The trail is not legal in the beginning, tt is the part b4 the gate... but once passed thru the gate, it is legal... do visit it only during the weekends... weekdays not recommended... It is a general downslope trail, like wat lawrence had said... rather bumpy road... thus recommended to release a bit of ur tyre air b4 starting... the downslopes are rather thrilling and exciting... but do be carefull not to fall into the numeral portholes and dun get lost!! Juz follow the main road all the way... till u reach the main road and turn right, which will eventually lead u to BT trail...

Recommended Route:
Go along Mandai Rd, turn into the road which leads u to the Zoo. Immediately after which, turn right into a small road (b4 the first bus-stop), which will lead u to the track. You will have to bring ur bike over/under /pass a gate first...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
BT, which is still my all time favourite... the Mandai Track 15 mentioned above has little climbs... but a lot of fun downslopes though...

Summary:
Boring is the word.Too much fireroads make this a minnie.U could tackle the whole trails without brakes(I belonged to the brakeless culture)Try without brakes on a gravel road which has lots of loose small black pebbles & into a turn...Fun....

Recommended Route:
Get in from Mandai road instead of bukit timah cos' it more closer to my home.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Too many....
