Hazard Commentsort descending Description
Mud It can be wet and muddy, especially when the harbour is experiencing very high tides

If you encounter mud on a reserve without the right footwear then you can have problems. Mud can occur anywhere, of course, after heavy rain but some reserves on clay or heavy soils can be muddy for much of the time. Activities such as mountain biking and horse riding can also churn up paths and make them almost impassable. 

Rough Ground There are no well made paths here

Nature reserves exist for the wildlife and plants that are found there and are not always visitor friendly, especially some smaller reserves. The ground on some reserves can be very rough going even when there are paths present and would not be passable by those who are less mobile.
