The area consists of heathland, woodland, streams and ponds with a wide variety of wildlife to look out for. These include birds such as Dartford warblers, nightjars and stonechats plus various butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies.
The walk can be extend by heading south west along the East Devon Way to the Hawkerland Valley and Woodbury Common. Here you will find miles of walking trails through heathland and heather with an ancient hill fort. If you head east you will soon come to Harpford Wood and Harpford Common where you can climb Beacon Hill for great views to Sidmouth and the coast.
