Walk - Baggy Point Short Walk
2.8 miles (4.5 km)
Baggy Point Car Park - EX33 1PA Baggy Point Car Park
Easy - Gently sloping walk out to Baggy Point and back. An alternative route back includes a short steep climb. The first part only of the walk, until point 2, is suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs, but after this, the path becomes narrow, with a steep drop to the sea, and no turning space.
A short easy walk out to the tip of Baggy Point and back again, taking in spectacular views of the coastline towards Bideford Bay and Hartland. Children will love the whale bones and the old wreck post, as well as the rocks and cliffs. There are steep drops, so children and dogs should be closely supervised, for their safety.
A good walk in spring, when seabirds nest on the cliff among the clumps of pink thrift and spotted white sea campion and the gorse bushes are ablaze. In autumn the migrant birds gathering ready for their journey south sometimes attract the attention of a predatory merlin or peregrine, sometimes even a hen harrier.
A good walk for dogs. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog-friendly beaches and pubs.
