Steep Slopes This is undualting terain and you can encounter some steep climbs in places

Escarpments and downland are often left unfarmed and so have a diversity of plant life and become designated as nature reserves to protect those species that are present. Steep slopes in such environments can be a struggle to climb and the risk of falling will always be present and special care is needed.
