High Point

Make way for walkers on hunters path!!

Some big hills to climb, one 17-25min climb after the initial gravel cycle track but with a very rewarding double track descent from the top of Cod Wood. A bit of road section in the middle of the ride for 2miles to get you back onto the amazing Hunters Path, views are amazing but it's a high volume national trust path around Castle Drogo so try to avoid peak times, the final descent off of Hunters Path to the pub is difficult with walkers let alone the off camber roots, sharp turns over routes around trees and off camber sections! But very rewarding and a pub at the finish for a swift shandy!
