Overview

A classic easy 2.5 mile circular walk along a relatively level section of the South West Coast Path between Lynton and the spectacular Valley of Rocks. As well as the stunning scenery, the Valley of Rocks are home to a herd of feral goats and the rare Exmoor pony.

There is a car park at the mouth of the valley although i left my car in the village so i walked to and back from the valley. It took about 30 mins. It is a short, moderate walk with stunning views.

I never tire of this walk. Whatever the weather, it is always dramatic and interesting. And the round trip via the Valley of the Rocks is less than an hour. Great.

We walked from Lynton not really knowing what Valley of rocks was. The path is fairly easy and tarmaced all the way along, but is very close to cliff edge with no barriers or rails. There are plenty of benches to sit and take in...More

Came across it quite by accident really. Loved it. The goats, the scenery, the beautiful walks. Why isn`t it more famous?? Am used to scenery as We come from Ross-Shire in Scotland but this still blew my socks off. Wonderful.

Not that I know of. The main spot for fossiling on the South West Coast Path are Lyme Regis and Charmouth on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset (about 2 hours away by car)
