Up hill but not too strenuous. You are rewarded with beautiful views out to sea. The National Trust keep the path well maintained and with regular information boards and way markers.

Great, easy to moderate walk with many areas with only enough space for single file. Beautiful views and great landmarks as well as beautiful flowers and foliage.

Walked the coastal part of this walk today as part of a complete South West Coast Path walk. The strip along the coast is good and it is well signposted. Views from Orcombe would be nice on a sunny day.

Exmouth has a great beach and all the things that make a great seaside break. It is however well worth the effort to walk up the cliff. The views are fabulous, and you can justify the chips when you return. How far you walk is...More
