Valley of the Rocks
This walk visits the amazing Valley of the Rocks in the Exmoor National Park. The dry valley contains the geological marvels known as the Lynton Beds. These ancient rocks are a spectacular sight and hugely popular with walkers.
This 4 mile circular walk starts in Lynton and heads west along the South West Coast Path to the Valley. Look out for feral goats as you make your way through the countryside. It's a good path and a fairly easy climb from Lynton, with wonderful views of the North Devon coast. You'll pass Wringcliff Bay, Castle Rock, Lee Bay and Lee Abbey.
