There's an information board at the carpark which is in the middle of the two arms of this trail. Start with the right hand side and just keep left, this will take you all the way around the perimeter. There's a composting toilet near the start, plenty of picnic tables through out so this is a great choice to bring the kids along to. Passing the carpark on the way back takes you out and back along the other arm of the reserve.
