Overview of Two Moors Way
Two Moors Way / Erme Plym Trail (115 miles / 184 km) is a combined long-distance walking route between Plymouth and the North Coast of Exmoor forming a true Devon Coast to Coast.
Starting in Plymouth, the Erme Plym Trail (13 Miles / 21 km) heads along the coast before veering north-east to finish at Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor, where the Two Moors Way begins (102 Miles / 163 km). From there the Two Moors Way heads northwards across Dartmoor and Exmoor to Lynmouth on the North Coast.
The Way links the only two National Parks in southern England and crosses both of them north-south. Not surprisingly, it passes through landscape of exceptionally high quality including the high moorland of some of the Dartmoor and Exmoor sections. It also passed through the deep and wooded valleys of the moorland edges and between the moors, unspoilt rural scenery with a remote and tranquil feel difficult to find elsewhere in modern times.
The walking is mostly not difficult, but there are one or two strenuous stretches and navigational skills are required on some unwaymarked, open moorland sections.
