Walks for all Ages in Exmoor

Walks for all Ages in Exmoor

by: Sue Robinson
Exmoor is one of the most attractive National Parks in England and Wales. It offers wonderful unspoilt and contrasting scenery to the visitor who likes to explore, with its beautiful coastline, moors and valleys. There are over 600 miles (1,000 km) of rights of way which honeycomb the area. These are well signposted, and whether you are a casual or a serious walker this park can be enjoyed by everyone.

Several areas within the Exmoor National Park have been declared Sites of Special Scientific Interest due to their flora and fauna. We must not forget the wild Exmoor ponies and the red deer which roam the moors and valleys. The beautiful rocky headlands, ravines, waterfalls and towering cliffs gained the Exmoor coast recognition as a Heritage Coast. The huge waterfalls and caves along this dramatic coastline are enjoyed by visitors of all ages. Exmoor National Park has also been awarded 'International Dark Sky Reserve' status.

Each walk begins with a description of the local area, followed by fully detailed route instructions. Full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping supports the text and there are snippets of useful information as you go along. The book also has lots of colour photographs throughout. At the beginning of each walk practical information listed includes distance, gradient, difficulty, approximate time, number of stiles, OS Explorer map number, path description, start point grid reference, parking information, suitability for dogs and local refreshment facilities and public toilets.
