A challenging but hugely rewarding 6 mile estuary and coastal walk. Be prepared for steep ascents and descents, especially the flight of steps down to Westcombe Beach - poles advised, especially if wet! The walk will include quiet lanes, woodland, stunning Wonwell Beach and dramatic cliffs. After resting on Hoist Point, the highest point between Plymouth and Dartmouth, we will turn inland at Westcombe Beach, passing a willow plantation and follow a lane, up the valley back to Kingston. Please be aware that the lane is likely to be very muddy.
