What will your challenge be?
HERE ARE THREE more stretches of Coast Path you could try in October, courtesy of National Trail Officer Mark Owen, who knows the trail backwards…
BEST 1- MILE STRETCH Morthoe to Morte Point
“An inspiring walk through an area of rare coastal heathland, the perfect feeding and breeding ground for many moths and butterflies. There are views out to Lundy Island, while lucky wildlife spotters may experience seals and even dolphins. It’s a particularly good section for dog walkers, but remember to keep them on leads close to cliff edges and in fields with livestock.”
BEST 7- MILE STRETCH Durdle Door and White Nothe
“A walk to take your breath away in every sense! Durdle Door is spectacular, but take the effort to continue along the coast when the crowds melt away and the views get even better. www.south westcoastpath.org.uk/durdledoor
BEST 100- MILE STRETCH St Ives to Falmouth
“This stretch takes in the most southerly and westerly points of the England coast, through the stunning scenery of the rugged far west of Cornwall and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk/ wildwestcoast
