Part of a 1000ha forest, the Jim Barnett Reserve was once logged for its massive rimu and totara trees. Community efforts have seen the rejuvenation of the forest and the reintroduction of native bird species such as the North Island Robin.
Highlights of the Jim Barnett Reserve include a dedicated camping area, picnic spots, and a 1000 year old totara tree which was spared during logging.
The main walking trail is a 30 minute loop track with shorter adjoining trails including the 15 minute Totara Track.
