Walking trails

There is a clearly defined circular route running around the reserve. In winter or during prolonged wet weather, some lower parts of the reserve become extremely muddy and difficult to negotiate. Boardwalks have been installed on some sections to alleviate this. There are several flights of steps running up the steep valley sides.


This reserve does not have wheelchair access.

About the reserve

  Brilley Green Dingle is all wooded. The western and eastern sides have different management histories and this is reflected in the ground vegetation today, with the western end being much richer in flora. An interesting and very noticeable vertical zonation in the flora of the Dingle can be seen. Millhalf Brook runs through the reserve and is home to a number of interesting invertebrates, such as the increasingly threatened white-clawed crayfish.
