Detailed description

Exmoor Explorer Routes 03.08.08
These are all "legal" routes for mountain bikes, planned with the
co-operation of  the NT, ENPA and landowners.

Leg 2 is the optional Long Route leg. Winsford back to Winsford.
About 9 miles or 1.75 hours.
Across the fields, sometimes with more deer than sheep, to the Exe again.
Then a hard, but rideable, climb to Winsford Hill. Crossing the Hill don't
forget to peer down into the wonderful "Punchbowl". The descent back to
Winsford needs care, some big dropoffs at the start of Yellowcombe Lane
