Description: Enter the reserve from near the first hairpin bend on Glenstrae Road. The track rises gently through the reserve with many additional branch tracks connecting to nearby roads and properties.
There are ongoing efforts to re-forest Drayton Reserve and you will spot many new totara, ngaio and kanuka plantings as well as a number of native birds such as silver eyes, grey warbler, fantails and bellbird.
The track finishes with a zig zag incline up to Mount Pleasant Road.
