It follows more country lanes than public foot paths thus making it not a dog walk. Part of the footpath, near Ranscombe, can be quite tricky.

However, there are some very rewarding views and moments of utter tranquility walking through a most undisturbed part of Devon.

Trusham boasts one pub Cridford Inn

There is a memorial plaque dedicated to the poet Charles Causley.
