North and Mid Devon Outstanding Circular Walks

North and Mid Devon Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Sue Viccars
This Pathfinder Guide provides 175 miles of extraordinarily varied walking along the very best parts of North Devon's coast including Exmoor's sylvan cliffs, the dunes of Braunton Burrows and the toughest stretch of the South west coast Path around Hartland Point. It also includes explorations of 'Tarka the Otter' countryside along the Taw and Torridge rivers and the rolling red-earthed fields of Mid Devon's 'Ruby Country', plus a nature-lover's visit to Lundy Island.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide includes an introduction to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the route's main features. The following detailed route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the full colour map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
