Description

Cross the magnificent moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor on the Two Moors Way – a Coast to Coast path suitable for both long-distance and day walkers.

The Two Moors Way spans 102 miles from Ivybridge on the southern boundary of Dartmoor National Park to Lynmouth on the North Devon Coast in Exmoor National Park. In 2005 the Two Moors Way was linked with the Erme–Plym Trail from Ivybridge to Wembury on the south Devon coast to create a cross-county coast-to-coast route of over 115 miles.

Here on Exmoor, folded sedimentary rocks give rise to smooth and rounded slopes on the moorland plateau, dissected by picturesque rivers in steep sided combes (valleys). This is a diverse landscape of small walled fields, historic farmsteads and pretty hamlets, and wild romantic moorlands leading to the coast. Towering sea cliffs make for a dramatic end to the walk at Lynmouth.
