Walk - Dittisham
5.0 miles (8.0 km)
Dartmouth - TQ6 9PS Dartmouth
Challenging - There is some steep ascent and descent and some of the paths may be muddy after rain so good footwear is advisable.
A breathtaking walk following the River Dart Trail along the western bank of the river, with spectacular views over the water and across to Tor Bay. In spring the hedges are full of tumbling blossom, and wildflowers line them in the summer. Listen out for blackbirds, robins and pheasants too. Take the ferry to Dittisham via Greenway and walk to back to Dartmouth over Fire Beacon Hill and along Old Mill Creek. A good walk in autumn, when late bees and butterflies browse in the hedges and the woods are full of small creatures rummaging in the fallen leaves for winter stores.
