The times vary according to your interests along the way as well as to which route you choose. At present we have two River Adventure Trails on the reserve, one slightly longer in distance (affording more scenic views of the river and surrounding forest), and one affording views of the surrounding area; Robberg Nature Reserve and Mt. Formosa mountains.


We are at present working on new areas of the forest, locating old logging trails that have not been seen or touched in years. Keep an eye on this page as we will soon be advertising new and exciting extra walks on Brackenburn!
