Lovely riding, mostly quiet lanes

High ground on Hambeldown, Pretty North Bovey village, Bowermans Nose & Hound Tors


No major problems here (please advise any)


In poor visibility, to keep to right path when coming down east on Bridlepath off Hameldown. It is easy to go on wrong one about 707 890 and end up going back up Hambeldown

Bridlepath at Heathercombe very steep on path & nearby road’s 719 812

Luckdown to Easdon Bridlepath is boggy, track adjacent OK but not B/path.

Hound Tor busy in summer.

Slippery concrete track at west Combe SX709 824(get off and walk)

Road Access mostly via small lanes, Best one perhaps is Beetor Cross 713 841 down to Hound Tor . Parking at Hound Tor.
