The pine fresh forests south of Newton St Cyres are maintained by the Forestry Commission and as yet undiscovered offering the walker complete tranquility and unsurpassed natural beauty.

OS maps do not show all the paths and tracks as many of them are new.

We hope to preserve the forests' unrivalled charm by not publishing detailed route descriptions. Instead,you can download our gps routes or use our maps.

This walk uses permissive paths which may at any time be closed.

However,judging by the new signs and gates we expect these paths to be open throughout 2017 - latest check August 2016

A very secluded walk near Exeter along major tracks and through magnificent,heavily scented forests,where wild deer can still be seen.

The paths are not clearly defined and grass may be long in summer.
