Map E6: North Bovey Printable Version
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 roads 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)
Points of Interest:
Hound Tor with Ice cream van in summer
Ring of Bells Pub at pretty North Bovey village
Excellent Horse B&B at Wingstone Farm, Manaton747 811
Road Access mostly via small lanes, Best one perhaps is Beetor Cross 713 841 down to Hound Tor . Parking at Hound Tor.
