Covert Way is the only Local Nature Reserve in the London Borough of Enfield.[1][2] It is also part of the Hadley Wood Golf Course and Covert Way Field Site of Borough Importance for Nature Conservation, Grade I,[3] and it has an area of 7 hectares.[4] It is on the southern border of Enfield between the road named Covert Way and Monken Hadley Common in Barnet.

Part of the site is semi-deciduous woodland which has woodpeckers and muntjac deer, and butterflies including white-letter and purple hair-streaks.[1] In grassland areas there are the rare adder's-tongue fern and the locally scarce four-spot orb weaver spider.[3]
