Big Tree is a small reserve off the N2 that houses a very big tree. Walk the easy kilometer-long loop around the Big Tree reserve, where an 800-year-old tree stands 36.6 meters high and eight adults wide. Just nearby is Fallen Tree, another centuries-old behemoth that crashed to the ground in 1994. The reserve also has well-marked longer hiking trails, ranging from 2 km to 12 km. Maps are available from the kiosk inside the reserve or at the Storms River tourism office.
