Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great place for a peaceful walk in the native bush and listening to the bird song.
Lots of people walking dogs who were all respectful of other walkers - we didn't see a single dog mess left behind (not that we were specifically looking for it).
Many different track options suitable for all levels of fitness.

Ben though a few times in the last few months. There are quite a few tui and kereru and is a place which a lot of people go to walk. The path between the bottom of the dam is now open and makes moving around much easiet.

Looped around the Wakari mountain bike area and down Flagstaff track and back into Ross Creek. Views over the reservoir and reading up on a little history.

We set out on a beautiful late December day for a wander round Ross Creek. Sadly, some of the paths are closed for track restoration, but we still managed to get a decent walk in. We loved walking through the trees and along the riverbank. Stunning place suitable for young families, older people and for those more energetic and wishing to run. Lots of different terrain and beautiful scenery.

Most visitors to Dunedin are probably unaware of this lovely nature reserve which has numerous native plants and beautiful walking tracks and is very close to the city centre.

We drove to Cannington Road/Burma Road to enter the reserve. The tracks are marked and there are hills but the walks are not difficult.

There are several beautiful tracks to explore and these are ideal for walking or running,

It was dry when we went and the water levels were low - including that of the creek, but if there has been significant rain you may find you will have wet feet from crossing the stream!

It is an enchanting place to wander and revitalise the senses. The smell of the moist earth, trees, and plants is heavenly with freshness, the clear calls of the birds are not interrupted by the modern world and the sounds of the water burbling along the creek and splashing from the waterfall refresh your soul.

We met friendly locals along the way and thoroughly enjoyed every step of our stroll. (we were there for over an hour)

The picturesque reservoir has historic significance and is still in use as a town water supply.

Note: Some areas had restricted access due to work being carried out (Jan 2018), however, this did not affect our enjoyment of the reserve.

Jogging is very popular here with bush tracks and varied terrain, dog walking and family outings are well suited to the bush and water reserves. It is a magical area in the snow, the dam repairs are partly restricting access but almost all of the recreational area is still available, well worth checking out.

The path between the reservoir and the lower track is closed to be repaired at this will not be finished until 2018 so it can affect your walk. To cross over the stream you also need to go through the water so bring a dry pair of shoes especially if they release water from the reservoir. At one end you have the Wakari mountain bike tracks and paths leading to the top of Flagstaff and the other end a short walk takes you to Wood
