Distance - 8.86 Miles
Ascent - 582 Metres
Well it had been a while since my last walk, I blamed the weather, everyone else blamed my laziness. So what better than a stroll on the coast, something to ease back into it, fresh air, the sea, and a section of the coast path rated Challenging, say what? Challenging? Well that's a bit harsh! So of I went to the coast to meet up with Nick, now a local to Exmoor.
|The start of the SWCP|
The first 3/4 mile is flat and mostly tarmac, this is to lull you into a false sense of security and is only just long enough to get the legs going. The path soon starts climbing, with a short sharp section in the woods. Despite the recent bad weather, the path is in pretty good nick, with only a few trees still blocking the path or muddy underfoot.
