    With some tough climbs and a challenging 17.5 miles (28 km) of distance, this is the most strenuous stage you encounter on the Ridgeway.


    Your effort is rewarded with spellbinding panoramic views, wildlife-rich nature reserves, and remarkable beauty, though.


    From Watlington, the trail is relatively flat
