A pedestrian entrance is located at the end of Bowrings Road connecting with the reserve's walking tracks. The reserve is 23ha in size and offers panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay.
The Reserve's dominant vegetation community is heathland with many varieties of wildflowers being visible from September.
I explored this interesting Reserve on Sunday October 3, 2010, following the main 4WD fire management track to the Summit, and down to the jungle next to the Creek (dry!).
This was about 3 km total - the track is very steep in sections, with a change of altitude from 127m to 202m.
The views were truly spectacular, but an annoying haze covered the bay and surrounding countryside.
This is a relatively unknown Reserve, managed by Parks Victoria in conjunction with the Shire of Mornington Peninsula.
