This 16.5 ha reserve is a mixed podocarp and beech remnant, rich in kahikatea, totara, beech, matai, tawa and kowhai. Native birds are plentiful, with spring being a good time to visit as tüï and bellbirds are attracted to the many flowering kowhai trees.

Bit out of the way but nice and quiet and a really nice walk near through the forest.

Not far odd state highway 50. Nice rustic toilet and good picnic area. Great for a hot day with lots of mature trees to park under. A little stream to have a splash. Not many flat sites available, but it strikes me as a place you are often likely to get to yourself. I'd certainly stay here again.
