HIKE UP THE BISHOP TRAIL


The entrance of the Bishop Trail


Fancy breaking a sweat under the 25 Celsius weather? There is a user-friendly jungle trek called the Bishop Trail for those seeking to get even more up close with Mother Nature. Did you know that the trail is named after Reverend Charles Jame Ferguson-Davie, the first bishop of Singapore, who was looking for his friend Louis James Fraser, the founder of Fraser’s Hill?

The search ended to no avail, but Ferguson was given a piece of land by the then British government where he built a small cottage and created a trail that led to neighbouring bungalows, giving birth to the Bishop Trail.
