About this walk

A good 'pit stop' about half way between Exeter and Barnstaple, this is a circular walk of around a mile and a quarter, with all but one short section on paved forest tracks. It follows both sides of a dingle with a stream in the bottom.

If you go round clockwise, then you have a slightly steep climb on an un-pathed path at the end, which is safer underfoot if there has been rain recently.

This walk is completely safe for off-lead. There is a pooper bin at the car park but pick-up is only expected from the paved areas.

Assuming you go clockwise, you have about a mile of gravelled track up to a bridge over the stream (swimming and drinking point!) then you loop back on the opposite side on a slightly rougher track back down to a small wooden bridge (another swim and drink stop). After the bridge an unpaved footpath zig-zags back up the side of the dingle to the entry point.

The first section would be suitable for wheelchairs as there are no steep slopes.
