    Look across to Dartmoor on a clear day. Tough going if there's a prevailing headwind!

    Stunning views over Exmoor: sheep grazing in long grass and golden moors backdropped against undulating hills. On clear days, you can see as far as Dartmoor. This stretch can be windy, so you may want to check a weather app before setting off – headwind here is tough!

    This is an amazing ridge (called ridge RD funilly enough) which, on good days, you can see all the way to Dartmoor (BIG spikyish ridge to SW), Rackenford & Knowstone moor (S on next ridge over) and what I think may be the Blackdowns (Bigish ridge to the SE). There are usually ponies, sheep and cows, the latter of which sit in the road. There are also sometimes deer.The ridge its self is relatively flat, undulating a bit more to the west, so can be quite nice to ride. Just be aware since most ways up to the ridge are horrible hills!
