12 miles, several steep hills

A 12 mile hike along a spectacular section of the South West Coast Path.

This linear walks starts in the pretty village of Porlock Weir. We'll then take the coastal path westwards before finally arriving in Lynmouth.

The walk starts off in woodland and goes through miles of spectacular flowering rhododendrons before it opens out towards Lynmouth. There's a fair few steep inclines along the route but it's worth it for the views across the Bristol Channel. On a clear day we'll have fab views over to Wales. We can get a much-needed ice cream in Lynmouth at the end.

This is a linear walk. Public transport is pretty non-existent, so it'll require a couple of us to leave cars in Lynmouth and the end we'll drive everyone back to the start. Another option is to pre-book taxis. Further details on this nearer the time. Dogs are welcome but we'll need to take this into consideration when organising lifts.

More information about the route can be found here.

This is one of several SWCP walks we'll be putting on in 2022, so keep an eye out!
