Devon's Best Forest & Woodland Walks

Jurassic Coast

This is a carefully selected collection of TOP (dog friendly) walks mainly on public footpaths, some with pubs, through the lush woods or forests of Devon. The walks range between 2 and 5 miles.

Visiting Forests or Woods is often like visiting a foreign country immediately challenging our senses and stimulating new thoughts.

During a hot summer woodlands provide welcome shelter.
