Staple Fitzpaine Herepath

13 miles (21 km)

This is a shared cycle and walking bridleway which forms a loop around Staple Fitzpaine in the beautiful Blackdown Hills AONB.
A good start point for the route is the car park at the ancient earthworks of Castle Neroche.
The route primarily follows a series of off road tracks through wooded areas including Staple Park Wood, Piddle Wood, Thurlbear Wood and Birkenhall wood. For cyclists, a mountain bike is advised as several of the off road sections are quite challenging.
