The Tarka Trail

Devon is a beautiful county and is well served by a plethora of cycle routes and tracks.
Apart from the obvious splendid coastal scenery in the region one of the main attractions for cyclists is the wonderful Tarka Trail (right) which is a 180 mile figure of eight stretch of footpaths and cycle paths in North Devon.
Highlights on the trail include the Exmoor National Park and some wonderful coastal views.

There are several National Cycle Network signed routes in the county many of which have been mapped and can be viewed and downloaded below.
