There's a few preserves with trails.  Not wilderness, but large parks within the city.  There's also an island just offshore (N to NE side of Singapore) that had a ferry and had some good trails.  I've heard, though, that this area was due to be developed.  If you want to really get away from the city, though, consider crossing over to Malaysia and head up the eastern coast or inland more east than west.

Not sure.  But, it couldn't be bad on that bridge to Johore.  Just customs on the other side.

Taman Negara is the best hiking if you have time, like a week or Cameron Highlands with a lot of day hikes.

For a weekend out of Sing I suggest Gunung Ledang. It's slightly over 4,000 feet and a great intro to hiking jungle mountains. It's a popular destination for Singaporean hikers. Check it out.

Singapore? Hiking? Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

My wife and I just returned from doing the C2C in England. 13 Days, Irish Sea to North Sea. Lots of rain, Expensive B&B's. Serious mountains in the Lake District. Lots of sheep, and expansive landscape. Great trip, but not one of the world's best.
Rics in Wyoming.
