Woodcutter's trail - Seletar Reservoir - Woodcutter's trail

Date: 2nd Oct 2011
Distance: 15.7km

The original plan was to tag along TS Chua led SANL trek of the woodcutter's trail for half the way and then branched off to Seletar reservoir. However I woke up late and didn't hit the trail until 9am. After some chasing and back tracking, I caught up with the main group at the first stream crossing. I then made off on a side trail to see if I could reach one of the finger tips of Upper Peirce reservoir. Failing that, I went along a trail that seems to run parallel to the main Woodcutter's trail. The trail finally leads onto a crossroad with the main Woodcutter's. Across the junction is the side trail that runs north to Seletar reservoir. The trail leads up to a hill with the summit marked by a couple of big rocks, one of which had paint writing 'Half Cow' in chinese characters. The trail finally leads to the shore of Seletar reservoir. Nearby, another trail begins that hugs the Seletar reservoir shoreline. Sadly, this trail is litterful. If not for the litter, this would have been an extremely pleasant trail. I followed the trail to the first finger tip before bashing my way back to the Woodcutter's main trail, and subsequently back tracking to my car at Bukit Gombak.
