Mount Belford is one of three peaks generally regarded as unimpressive. However, it and Mount Oxford, have gentle slopes that attract beginning climbers and families. It is no surprise, therefore, that its popularity had resulted in overuse and erosion. A single trail has been established and re-vegetation is in process to reduce this condition. Hikers are advised to stay on the established route; rare and sensitive plants exist in this area.
