This multi used trail has 480 hectares of unique and wild wilderness for you to explore. There is a 7 mile circular track that makes it way around the Moor, a perfect cycle route for all abilities. The Moor is mostly flat and off road making it a perfect place to novice walkers and cyclists. When exploring this nature reserve you donít have to stick to the set routes you can go any where you want with a choice of wetland, heath land or scrubland to choose from.

Bodmin Moor is one of the last unspoilt places left in the South West with it first being farmed over 400 years ago by bronze age settlers. There are granite tors which tower high over the sweeping expanse of the open moor. This is a marsh and bog land which drains down on to shallow moorland that then give way to the deep valley rivers that provides shelter for the rich and damp oak forest. While walking through this Moor you can really see how ancient and un touch this place is, you can nearly feel the history in the air.
