A network of 4×4 mountain trails, covering about 44 km, provide access to all corners of the reserve. All the trails were originally constructed for flower harvesting purposes.
The main purpose of the trails at present is to provide access to the Fynbos of the Witteberg and to some remote heritage sites.
Three Witteberg vegetation units exist in the reserve, namely Matjiesfontein Shale Fynbos, Shale Renosterbosveld and Quartzite Fynbos.
Indigenous fauna on the property includes grey reebok, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, aardwolf, aardvark, black-backed jackal, leopard, caracal, Cape fox, bat-eared fox.
The prolific bird life includes many colourful species of nectar sippers.
Each season in the Witteberg Private Nature Reserve has its own unique character and beauty.
