This 7.5 ha reserve is really a hidden forest of natural bushland as 95% of the reserve is almost untouched bushland. The only man-made intrusions would be a small playground, picnic shelter, a toilet block and the gravel paths, both wide and narrow. Some of the paths are steep and would not be suitable for wheelchairs and prams.
By following the map at the two main entrances, a short flat trail will lead to the playground and picnic area allowing easy access to the mobility challenged and give them a real bush experience on the way.
Incorporated into the many walking paths is the Ringwood Rotary Sensory Trail. This trail is frequently marked with interpretive plaques naming adjacent trees, plants, flowers and butterflies that can be seen in the immediate area. The flower and butterfly sightings would be seasonal.
An information board in the picnic shelters lists ten different species of birds that can be seen and heard in the reserve. These include the powerful owl, grey butcherbird, crimson rosella, red wattlebird, gang gang cockatoo and kookaburras. On my walk, I heard many, but saw none, apart from the wooden owls.
