  Map G2 map east

DRAMATIC MOORLAND,

Very steep valleys and high hills. Great views, very deep valleys, easy riding on edge, harder further up

AVOID:

Army range further south when firing

TAKE CARE

Crossing busy main roads.

ROUTES

C Circular Route is mostly easy to follow, nearly all on clearly shown green tracks over good ground. It has taken the route north of the reservoir as this is easiest to follow.

There is a route south of the reservoir which will be shown later.

Interesting Bridlepath up under Meldon Viaduct

Other info needed in this area

ATTRACTIONS:

Meldon reservoir - views from all the high ground - easy access from parking areas

ACCESS/PARKING:

Easy access from main road A386 Prewley Moor 545 910 and from dual carriageway A30 to Meldon Dam 560 917, but this may be busy in summer

LOST?

Generally go NORTH.
