Exmoor – what to Expect
Dunkery Beacon is the highest point in Somerset and is pretty open. Due to its proximately to the sea it’s a bit of a windy old place at times.
Some amazing descents off the top though

Mondraker Gravity Enduro in July – its based just outside Porlock and takes in some of the best trails in the area.buzz-lightyearMember
It’s my favourite place to ride in fine weather but I find it just too far to regularly day trip. When we get into summer ill be camping and riding from Porlock a few weekend. Beware the hills feel big and have some evil climbs. Dunkery is quite rocky while the woods are dirt and roots. It could be a bit muddy still.Posted 5 years agodobiejessmoMember
Do the Bridleway of the top of Dunkery Beacon down across the road and onto Brockwell lovely.99% of the time its windy on top of Dunkery Beacon.Also there is lots of trails of Grabbist Hill which is the ridge behind Minehead.In the hot weather its great riding through all the stream crossing in Horner wood.Some tough climbs around there.Been riding Exmoor for 23 years odd great place doent change much and you dont see to many people.Posted 5 years agorichiethesilverfishMember
Where do you live then Dobiejessmo?
Whilst I’ve not ridden Exmoor that much, and certainly not very much in recent times, I too have been a mountain biker on Exmoor (and mainly the Quantocks) for 23 years. Just wondering if our paths have crossed?
I grew up in Taunton and was one of the original ‘Ralphies’ MTB lot.Posted 5 years agodobiejessmoMember
