Walk - The Wildlife & Forts of Berry Head NNR
1.6 miles (2.6 km)
Berry Head Visitor Centre - TQ5 9AP Berry Head Visitor Centre
Easy - Easy walk on good paths along the flat plateau of Berry Head National Nature Reserve. Most of this route is level and on surfaced paths suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs, and a mobilty scooter suitable for this walk can be borrowed from the visitor centre.
Berry Head National Nature Reserve is Torbay's most important wildlife site, with many rare plants dependent upon the thin soils, mild climate, and exposed conditions of the headland.
This walk is part of our "Summer Strolls". Although there are no beaches en route (Torbay and all its amenities are close by!) this is a walk to be enjoyed by everyone on a summer's day. It is also good in autumn when the many migrant birds that gather can sometimes include rare breeds, such as Alpine swifts.
