Distance:12.5 miles


Some major roads will need to be crossed - most have a pedestrian crossing with lights.

If the distance of almost 13 miles is somewhat daunting , you may wish to only do part of it and use the bus to return to your starting point.

The route is well signed.

Follow light green arrow on white disc.

It seems to avoid pubs but one is worth mentioning on the outskirts of Exeter ; it is ten minutes off the main route.
