Walk - Sherrycombe and Girt Down
4.9 miles (7.9 km)
Overhead barrier car park at Holdstone Down - EX34 0PF Overhead barrier car park at Holdstone Down
Challenging - Footpaths, tracks and quiet lanes, with some very steep ascent and descent.
A high-level walk through atmospheric coastal heathland, with far-reaching views, some plunging valleys and a fascinating variety of archaeological remains. A great route in autumn, when the heathland is bright with gorse and heather and noisy migrant birds feast on the berries on the rowan, thorn and elder bushes.
