From Ladybower Reservoir follow the road across the dam on tarmac; and becomes a dirt track, look for a gate on the left hand side for a path made of slabs - take this. Try to ride all the way to the barn! Continue up the spectacular climb. When you get to Whinstone Lee Tor have a breather to take in the view down the length of the valley. The descent starts off on a gradual descent but gets more fun as you progress, it can be confusing which path to chose. If you have come up from Ladybower and reached the top, the bridleway is at 9 o'clock and is the wider path heading down. Stick to the upper, rocky line which has been built with jumps and avoid the sensitive peat bog on the lower right side of the path. The path forks before you get to the bridge and continues down to the pub. A great descent!
