Easy - Gentle river paths, with some stretches of tarmac. No ascent or descent
An easy stroll through the breathtakingly beautiful Lower Otter Valley with its wonderful diversity of wildlife. The valley is managed as a nature reserve, and there are hides and viewing platforms along the river, as well as an abundance of information en route. Look out for dragonflies and kingfishers, moths and butterflies, frogs and fish, ducks and waders. An especially good walk for younger children, who will love the abundance of wildlife and the many viewing places. A pleasure in autumn, whne the leaves start to turn and the bushes are alive with birds after the berries, and migrant birds start to gather at the mouth of the river.
