Hikers and trail runners are best able to experience the reserve’s diversity because they can access all designated trails–whether sandy, rocky, steep, or narrow–and they are able to scramble through the Upland Zone’s rugged terrain. Activities such as birdwatching and photography are also popular with hikers. However, leaving the designated trail to do so is prohibited, except in the Upland Zone. Wildlife should be observed from a distance; disturbing animals may force the animal to flee preferred habitat. A good pair of binoculars or a telephoto lens can assist in observing wildlife “up close” while preventing disturbance.

Water is largely unavailable in the reserve, so drinking water should be carried at all times.
