Walk - Foreland Point Adventurous Walk
5.2 miles (8.3 km)
Barna Barrow Car Park - EX35 6NE Barna Barrow car park
Challenging - Tracks, lanes, footpaths, bridleways, quiet roads, ascent and descent. The optional adventurous route around Foreland Point is narrow and exposed, and notices on the path warn walkers not to attempt it in poor weather. Use the shorter route if this is the case, or if you have no head for heights or are not confident of your surefootedness.
This walk features some of the most stunning scenery to be found on this part of the Coast Path, with an inspirational trek around a remote headland for the stout of heart and limb. There is a gentler shortcut to the fascinating miniature wilderness beyond for those with no head for heights, or for when the weather prohibits an adventurous ramble. A wonderful walk in spring, when fresh bracken unfurls beneath gorse and thorn bushes on the scree-clad slopes, and the headlands stretch out in a hazy blue distance up and down the coastline.
