This is a varied but quite challenging river and coastal walk to Salcombe Hill offering stunning views and an ideal opportunity for a picnic.

It follows public footpaths into Sidmouth along the river Sid, then climbs steeply up Salcombe Hill following the South West Coast Path.

Here it turns inland through a lush valley to Springcombe, where it heads West back to Sidmouth.
