The Devon section runs from the Cornwall border near Holsworthy to the Somerset border east of Tiverton. The route encompasses a great variety of scenery from the commanding heights of Exmoor to the flatness of the Taw-Torridge estuary. The route passes through lush river valleys, along quiet canal towpaths, through idyllic rural villages, all of which typify Devon’s beautiful countryside.
It also offers sections that will suit all cyclists. Families, even those with young children, can enjoy a half-day trip along the traffic-free sections of the Tarka Trail. Dedicated touring cyclists will enjoy the challenge of the majestic landscape of Exmoor and the superb views of Dartmoor south of Hatherleigh, as part of a long-distance touring holiday.
Between Great Torrington, Bideford and Barnstaple the route is shared with the Devon Coast to Coast (NCN Route 27).
