From Lyme Regis on the Dorset border, Route 2 continues through Seaton, Sidmouth and Exmouth. It then circumnavigates the Exe Estuary via Exeter to Dawlish on the traffic free Exe Estuary Trail.
The proposed Route 2 via Newton Abbot is under development so Route 2 restarts at Totnes and continues via a moorland route through Ivybridge to Plymouth. A coastal alternative route from Totnes to Plymouth is fully open as far as Malborough near Salcombe. Both these alternatives take in the north or south section of the Dart Valley Trail which runs through Totnes.
