This route starts and finishes in the town of Sidmouth, at the junction of York Street with East Street. A beautiful and scenic journey on the south west coast, with some extreme hills along the way and too many stiles, steps and gates to even estimate. This is not a gentle run and the first couple of miles are tough. You will follow the coast as far as Weston Plats, passing the shipwrecked Napoli as you go, before heading in land and through a donkey sanctuary. You will then negotiate some farmland, passing back through Salcombe Regis where some more hills await. Once back at the cliff top you can enjoy the long down hill that you nearly crawled up earlier. Following the correct paths takes concentration and there is plenty of opportunities to go the wrong way.
