Notes on Tarka Trail Guidebooks
We display four guidebooks. Although some are out of print, they are available from third-parties via our amazon link (above).
The Tarka Trail is enjoyable, and never far from refreshment.
Care is needed at weekends, as there are quite a number of cyclists using part of the route.
We have displayed the two Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps which cover the Tarka Trail and Track.
