J H B Peel's 'Portrait of Exmoor'. It's this striking contrast and variety of intertwined landscapes which gives Exmoor its remarkable appeal and offers such a richly rewarding and stimulating area for adventurous walkers. There's wildness on the desolate moorland plateau and along the rugged cliff tops, both of which offer an expansive feel and miles of fine distant views.
One of the joys of Exmoor is the seemless, flowing connection between moors and cliffs, whilst at the same time, cutting through them, are winding valleys that provide a more gentle, intimate landscape. We round each bend with a thrill of anticipation, wondering what new secrets will be revealed. All 40 walking routes include: walking route summary, ratings for Effort Time Distance Ascents/Descents Refreshments and Vertigo risk, fully detailed walk description including frequent timings to aid navigation, GPS waypoints for pin-point navigational accuracy, full colour Ordnance Survey licenced mapping, short walk and stroll alternatives.
