The Two Moors Way
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.
From Lynmouth, the route starts along the cleaves of the East Lyn River and Hoar Oak Water, then rises dramatically up on to Exmoor. From Exe Head it continues on to Simonsbath, Withypool and the Tarr Steps before turning south towards Dartmoor.
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.
