“This guidebook describes the 187km (102 mile) Devon Coast-to-Coast Path, or Two Moors Way. The trek travels south to north, from Wembury on the south coast, up through Dartmoor and mid-Devon, through Exmoor to Lynmouth on the Bristol Channel. The trek can be adjusted to suit each walker, and can take between a week to 10 days depending on itinerary. While thousands of visitors flock to Devon every year, few leave the honeypots and coast, so walkers on the Two Moors Way are treated to beautiful and remote countryside, far from the crowds. The route winds north from the coast, up past Ivybridge into the wilds of Dartmoor, where the path crosses the upper course of the River Dart, and passes through Dunstone Down and Chagford. The way through mid-Devon visits Witheridge and Knowstone before climbing onto Exmoor and into Somerset, before reaching the sea. This guidebook combines clear route descriptions and OS map extracts with plentiful practical details on each stage of the route as well as advice on accommodation, facilities, and how to travel to and from the Way. Also included is a wealth of detail on the history, geology and wildlife along the way, as well as noting points of interest to enhance your trek.”

For those who prefer physical maps, six Two Moors Way maps at 1:25,000 scale cover the route, but the Harvey map of the route (displayed) should suffice. From 2019 the Cicerone map booklet will be available.
“The Two Moors Way is a long-distance walking route between Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor and Lynmouth on the north coast of Exmoor.

The Way links Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks and passes through varied terrain: high moorland, wooded valleys, and unspoilt rural scenery with a remote and tranquil feel.
