Description

The longest of Britain’s National Trails, the South West Coast Path follows the stunning coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England, from Somerset all the way to Dorset.

This newly revised and updated volume covers the third section: 179 miles (288 km) from St Mawes to Dawlish Warren, divided into 14 chapters. It follows the wild craggy cliff paths of South Cornwall and Devon, passing tiny fishing villages where you can still buy today’s catch and the great naval harbour of Plymouth, with daily views of an unequalled range of floral, avian and marine wildlife. Walk the whole length of this section of the Coast Path and you will climb and descend 30,000 feet – 1,000 feet more than the height of Mount Everest! For the casual holiday stroller or the fit long-distance walker, this guide contains everything you need.
 
National Trail Guides are the official guidebooks to the fifteen National Trails in England and Wales and are published in association with Walk Unlimited, the official body charged with developing and maintaining the Trails.
