Walk - Victoria Hotel - Salcombe Hill
5.5 miles (8.9 km)
Victoria Hotel, Sidmouth Victoria Hotel, Sidmouth
Moderate - Footpaths through woods and fields, tarmac paths, quiet roads. Some steep ascent and descent.
From Salcombe Hill, high above Sidmouth, you drop through woodland to the path running along beside the River Sid to the seafront, where a shingle ridge provides a buffer zone between the sea and the town. The Alma Bridge, with its nineteenth-century origins, leads to the cliff-path zigzagging up the hill, above the towering red cliffs, to bring you up to a viewpoint with breathtaking views out over Lyme Bay and the famous cliffs of the Jurassic Coast.
