The Two Moors Way is a long-distance walking route between Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor and Lynmouth on the North Coast of Exmoor, comprehensively way marked except on the open moorland sections. It has a total length of 102 miles (163 km), making it an ideal week's walk. The Two Moors Way passes by Little Owl and is ideal for walkers.
The Knowstone and Rackenford Moors are Devon Wildlife Trust Nature Reserves and offer one of the largest remaining areas of Culm grassland. They consist of a mixture of wet grassland, heath, bog and scrub and support a wild diversity or wildlife. The reserve has rich flora, including such species as heath spotted orchid, marsh violet, devil's-bit scabrious, bog asphodel and bogbean. The animal life is also abundant. The reserve supports 28 species of butterflies, including the rare marsh fritillary, and a variety of birds including curlew, stonechat and willow warbler and, in the winter, woodcock and snipe. Red deer are a common site.
