It includes The Big Wood and Cathkin Braes Park Woodland, both areas of mature beech, sycamore and oak trees. In addition there is grassland, heath, hedgerows and wetlands. These natural areas provide foraging habitat for a number of species, including kestrels and owls.
A number of mountain bike trails have been constructed in the area. These were used for the 2013 British National Mountain Biking Championships, and will be the venue for mountain biking at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
