The hill today is a large stretch of open heather moorland between the rivers Barle and Exe. It is crossed by several roads, notably that from Dulverton to Exford. It is famous for the Caratacus Stone and the wild Exmoor ponies. Cattle grids on the roads stop the ponies straying from the hill over which they roam freely. Every age has left its mark on the hill from prehistoric barrows to quarries. During the medieval and early modern periods there were enclosed fields on the hill for cultivation. Traces of the ridges and furrows left by ploughing can still be see in places.
