This popular reserve boasts a variety of habitats and offers 30 designated walking trails. The Curtisii Trail directs users to the highest point in Karawtha Forest, winding through dry eucalypt forest and ascending a series of high ridgelines and rocky outcrops.
The Curtisii Trail is graded as a difficult path due to steep, rocky sections ascending and descending the peak. A lack of barriers at the top allows for unobstructed views but obviously poses additional safety risks. Sturdy walking shoes and extra care are recommended.
Despite this rating, the majority of the walk is quite easy. The main limitation of this track is its proximity to the motorway. There is a particular section that travels right along the fenceline, significantly detracting from the nature experience.
The Curtisii Trail is approximately 2 kilometres in length. To access this trail, users need to firstly walk part of the Casuarina Trail, with optional detours via the Swamp Box, Mahogany or Bracken Trails (trail map).
