A new guide to Britain’s most popular National Trail
The South West Coast Path passes through five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, two World Heritage Sites and one National Park. This up-to-date guidebook will help walkers, backpackers and trail runners get the most from exploring this breath-takingly beautiful National Trail. The South West Coast Path’s stunning 1,014km / 630 miles of cliffs, beaches, inlets and headlands have been divided into sixty-three sections, graded for physical challenge. Each section can be completed as a day walk (or a morning’s trail run!), or as part of a longer ‘thru-hike’.
A route description isn’t necessary to navigate this well-signposted coastal trail. This book instead reveals the many, many engaging landscapes, sites and environs along the trail; the South West Coast Path is far greater than the sum of its parts! This book’s pages are crammed with landmarks and viewpoints, nature and wildlife, history and geology, with detailed mapping to help you locate these highlights.
