Exmoor National Park have launched a fantastic new set of self-guided short walks, showcasing ten of the most iconic and quintessential ‘Exmoor’ routes.
Each of the walks, of up to two and half hours, aims to immerse the walker in a different aspect of the unique character and qualities of the National Park, from the heather-clad heights of Dunkery Beacon to the historic Tarr Steps, and untamed wildness of the Doone Valley. The dedicated website – exmoorwalks.org – details each of the ten walks, and there are accompanying video guides and OS Mapping for each route.
The aim of the new Explorer Walks is to give people the chance to get to know not just the best-known areas of Exmoor but also, its hidden gems. It’s an opportunity to understand the story of people and nature that has given rise to this incredible landscape, and to do it in a way that is accessible to most people, whether first timers looking for a leisurely stroll or seasoned lovers of Exmoor looking to learn something new about the place.
Step away from the typical tourist destinations to discover one of the West Country’s best kept secrets – a fairy-tale landscape here on Exmoor!
