Probably one of Dunedin's least known and least visited public reserves. This substantial remnant of dry, coastal, native bush with some mature podocarps surrounded by regenerating trees and shrubs forms a large V-shaped gully from McGregors Hill down to St Leonards and is a remnant of the extensive forest that once covered the north-harbour hills. Access to the reserve is by climbing the boundary fence and can be quite steep in places; there arent any tracks! Leave the Department of Botany car park at 9.30 a.m. returning early afternoon.
