- lots to interest & good riding

Pretty Reservoir, Dramatic Tors, interesting places, good riding, can be busy, ice ream vans.


Busy B3212 main road.


Lots of Tourists, especially children around Burrator, Sheepstor busy with climbers and walkers.


C Circular Route mostly easy to follow

Points of interest:

The Reservoir, which has ice cream vans in summer. Sheepstor has great views and is a very big rock.

Old railway track on northern half is pleasant and interesting.Yennadon Down is good ground for a nice canter. Pub at Meavy Bridle paths through woods to east of Reservoir.

Access / Parking:

Access is mostly via B3212 and there are parking places on it but very “exposed”. Parking just south of the Dam probably better but very busy in summer


Look at the map, you shouldn’t really get lost around here for too long.

Find the Puffing Billy Red Lake track / generally GO SOUTH
