High Point

Set off from Belstone, plenty of on-road parking, One very high speed descent with sheep that can jump out (you can hit 50mph) from the "Pillbox" at the top - an old Army Pillbox for live firing.

Watch out for flags which indicate live firing, no access on these days - can be checked online google "Okehampton Firing Range".

Completely exposed so weather can batter you, whatever the weather is in Belstone, expect it 10x worse at the top

 Not really mountain biking, 90% on road/track.
