  3. The old trail ending at Chu Lin Road, as far as I know, was cut off due to the landslides.
    However, there is a track that was created towards Chua Chu Kang that was used during the grouting of the landslide area. You can access this new track via the slope at the back of the HDB blocks at BB West Ave 5. Use Google Earth for an aerial view and you can see the new zigzag road towards the old Chu Lin landslide area.
