This 38ha reserve has a little-known lower section between Kensington Drive Margaret Maytom Avenue which recently had trails developed, especially for people who wish to walk with their dogs.

The original (upper) part of the reserve is coastal bush with many birds - one of the bird watching sites in Durban and is therefore popular, especially over weekends. The circular route around the reserve is about 1, 5km and there is a shorter route which is only about 1km. Allow roughly two hours to amble around the reserve.
