The Glen Reserve, Bonnet Bay – Hound-friendly walks

Apr 11, 2021 | Hound-friendly walks

The Glen Reserve is a large bushland reserve in Bonnet Bay. The Reserve is a lovely little sanctuary of paperbarks, mangroves and she-oak forests bordering the meandering Woronora River. With all the sights and sounds of the bush, the Glen Reserve is the perfect scent walk for those city-slicker hounds!

Where: Bonnet Bay, NSW. Entrance to the trail can be found near the bend of Washington Drive and Lower Washington Drive. There is another entrance/exit point on Van Buren Circuit. You can download the map of the walking track from Sutherland Shire Council here.

Length/duration: Approximately 2km return. The walk is initially a wide fire trail. Partway down the firetrail, on the left, there is a narrow bush track that leads to a boardwalk. The bush track is downhill, with some natural rocky steps, that leads to a bridge across a little stream, where your hound can cool off (if they are so inclined!) It is a narrow, rocky and sometimes uneven track.

Opening hours: 24/7, 365 days per year!

On lead/off-leash? Check signage at the entrance to the trail

For the hounds: No poo-bag dispensers or drinking fountains. Closest tap in Koolangarra Reserve (approx. 1 min drive from entrance to Glen Reserve Fire trail)

For the humans: There is a seating area at the end of the boardwalk. The nearest café is The Flying Swallow, next to Koolangara Reserve. A number of cafes, restaurants and pubs can also be found in Jannali town centre (4 min drive from trail entrance)
