The Signpost Steps take visitors up a steep path from the Orchard Trail and Honey Path to the Signpost Corner, along which the tall, Acacia trees were planted in the early years of KFBG as a windbreak and firebreak. However the Acacia are an invasive species and are aging, and are gradually being replaced with native trees.
Please download 'Suggested Walking Routes' for details of routes, walking times, elevation, difficulty levels and highlights.
In the high-visitor-traffic areas of the Lower Area there are many handrails, walls and painted step-edges.
In order to preserve the wild feeling of the walking trails in the semi-wild areas of the forest paths above the Raptor Sanctuary and Orchid Haven, and the wild areas of the Sky Trail, we provide relatively less safety infrastructure. Visitors are expected to take more personal responsibility for their safety in these areas.
