Walk Description

There are three main trails to follow, hopeful over a few visits, across the open common land. The routes are well marked and covered with board walks in the peatland but please be careful as you walk as this a delicate ecosystem. The wildlife and nature found here is unique from the peat plants such as the sundew and the wild Exmoor ponies on site. The village of Skipwith is a lovely place to visit for a pit stop at the local cafes and pubs.
