Long distance walks
Two Moors Way
Explore idyllic Devon countryside and two National Parks with the Two Moors Way. A 102 mile long distance walking route between Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park and Lynmouth on the north coast of Exmoor National Park. The route can also be extended by starting or finishing at Wembury on the south Devon coast, adding around 15 miles to the walk following the Erme-Plym Trail. The route can be split into section for day walking.
We are currently working closely with the Ramblers Association to develop the Dartmoor Way walking route. A 110 mile route that takes you around the whole of the National Park. The walk will be launched in September 2020.
Templer Way is an 18 mile route between Haytor and the south coast. The Templer Way traces the route by which granite was exported from Dartmoor via the unique Haytor Granite Tramway and the Stover Canal. The route skirts the edge of Bovey Tracey, passes through Newton Abbot and finishes in Teignmouth. It is clearly waymarked except on the open moor.
The route takes in a wide range of scenery including open moorland, woodland and river valleys. You will also pass old quays and locks, walk along the estuary foreshore and see fascinating examples of the old tramway and canal. Walking is quite easy from Haytor to Teignmouth (downhill) but quite strenuous in the opposite direction.
West Devon Way
The West Devon Way is a 37 mile walking route that explores the western edge of Dartmoor, running from Okehampton in the north of the National Park to Plymouth. The waymarked route can be divided into 8 stages with each stage starting or finishing near a bus stop.
