The water PipeLine Rambles are a series of 4 treks introduced in 2008.
WPLR 2 and WPLR 3 are my favorite treks.
1st WPLR 2 was on 2nd August 2008 & then on 09March 2013, 5 years ago.

IF you have not been on this WPLR, you will not wanna miss it!
IF you have done this before, I reckon you are not able to recall and will
not want to miss it either!

This interesting trek with lush greenery all the way is not “our norm walk in the park”.
The terrain is undulating, as we trek up & down slopes, the route is mostly off the
beaten track.

The trail is exploratory and you can add some excitement if you so wish,
** get onto & walk on a large pipe OR
** slide down another OR
** test of strength…. challenge your Hand Power, heave oneself up a 4-feet
wall (if the wall is still there).

Let me assure you that the challenges are not as daunting as it seems ….

The walk shall end likely somewhere at Sixth Avenue where a variety of cuisine awaits!

Covered walking shoes that would not skid is highly recommended, but not new shoes as some parts might be sloshy.

IF you do not wish your legs to itch, come in long pants, longer socks & insects repellent; walk light with only the necessities.

Our Walk Team ECs: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and I, ChristinA Chan,,,,, signing off!

Do bear with me should we wander off course as I have no time to recce the entire trail,
