      This reserve, which covers 26 hectares, is located on the prominent lava flow ridge that encloses Lyttelton on its eastern border. It is less rugged than Whakaraupo, and is a good place for picnics and walking. It is bounded on its northern boundary by a block of land owned by Lyttelton Port Company and on its eastern and southern sides by Sumner Road.

      There are several informal tracks and walkways on the reserve. Considerable work has been done in developing a mountain bike track.
