Just past Barton church, the Trail turns east and the view south is into the heart of the Barton Hills national Nature Reserve. Natural England describe it as “mostly flower rich chalk grassland typical of the north Chilterns, including a large population of the nationally rare pasque flower. The reserve also includes areas of Chilterns beech woodland and ash-maple woodland, plus a number of springs flowing into a chalk stream at the foot of the valley”. GR 087303
