The trail is deep in the reserve away from highways and urban development on a refreshingly quiet stretch of land.
In addition to wildlife, over 250 species of birds have been spotted in the reserve. A bird watching shelter (bird hide) is located near the lake.
The hike starts as the 6 KM Nature Walk Trail from the coffee shop and later forks into the 5 KM Nature Walk Trail, combining both. After a walk through the meadows, the trail leads into dense bushland through the ruins and the “Rocky Mountain.” Shortly thereafter, the trail reaches its highest point with a viewpoint of the area.
