The walk takes you through mixed woodland with hazel and ash trees before climbing onto the open hilltop and some of the best views in Somerset. You'll pass a number of historic features such as ancient barrows and cairns and at the top of the hill walk by Seven Sisters, a beech tree clump which can be seen from many miles away. The hill is often alive with bird song but for many the main attraction is the resident herd of Exmoor Ponies.
