Barle: Simonsbath to Withypool

Grade 2
Length 10 km
Paddleable high to spate

in Exmoor · South West · other sections on Barle


Unusual and undemanding run: mediocre whitewater but fun as an exploratory adventure. First 500m often portaged along the footpath river left to avoid 2 sheep fences, before continuous gd2 through open moorland. Landacre bridge is an alternative takeout as it is flat from there down to Withypool.
