Explore two easy access walking trails

Pack a picnic, and make your way to Mamhead, where you can enjoy easy access walking trails and fall in love with spectacular views.

The flat, fully surfaced trails provide a safe place for everyone. Choose between the one-mile and the one-and-a-half-mile loop that both start and finish at the car park.

It doesn't matter which one you go for as both routes reward you with views of the Jurassic Coast which are bound to take your breath away.

A day out for everyone

As the walking trails are designed for all abilities, nobody gets left behind - dogs included. Bring along your pooch who'll no doubt fall in love with the area.

Little ones will love running alongside you too, eager to explore all they can. And there are resting points along the way if you want to take a breather and simply enjoy the stunning views.

Fall in love with views of the Jurassic Coast

Pause, take a deep breath, and appreciate the scenery as you listen to the birds and feel the breeze on your face. The unobstructed views of Exmouth, the River Exe, and the rolling hills that surround you will instantly make you feel so glad that you ventured here.

With plenty of free parking, this can become a regular place to get your step count in while counting the pennies. It means you'll have more money to spend treating yourself in a nearby café or cosy pub after your walk!

Nearby Haldon Forest Park

If you’ve enjoyed exploring the woodland and views so much that you want to make a day of it, then visit nearby Haldon Forest Park, which is only a 15-minute drive away. Explore some of the 3,500 acres on foot, bike or segway and see the forests from above at Go Ape.

Share the adventure

There's nothing quite like a stroll through glorious woodland, with stunning views of the surrounding area.

You’ll be eager to return to Mamhead and bring along your friends to share the hidden gem you've discovered.

Driving along the A380, at the top of Telegraph Hill, head towards Mamhead/Starcross. Then take your first right and after around half a mile you'll find the car park.
