Walk 1 White Cross (4.2 miles )



This pleasant walk consists of a steady but easy climb through an almost alpine landscape.

At White Cross the views of Woodbury Common and Dartmoor are quite breathtaking - not surprisingly, the East Devon Way follows this delightful route.

On return you descend into a rolling valley of an almost forgotten Devon, past Sidbury Castle, a large Iron Age hill fort.
