Walk - Trentishoe Barrows
7.3 miles (11.7 km)
Car Park near South Dean Farm - EX31 4QA Car Park near South Dean Farm
Challenging - Footpaths and tracks, quiet country lanes, a lot of ascent and descent, some of it steep.
A demanding walk through a moorland landscape, where dramatic steep-sided valleys cleave deep channels in the humpback hills clad in coastal heathland. Up on the exposed heights buzzards and ravens wheel above the last remnants of prehistoric hut circles and the barrows, cairns and standing stones which lurk in the bracken between medieval field systems and ancient silver mines.
