'Walking is one of the best ways to get to know an area, and get a little exercise at the same time. Walks in Dartmouth are everywhere – the town is situated on the South West Coast Path and in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and so a range of walks accessible all year round are on offer. Choose from short easy historical trails, more moderate river walks, or challenging coastal hikes – whichever you choose, the views from every direction are rewarding. We’ve listed just a few of our top walks in and around Dartmouth for you to try.'

'We walk fortnightly on a Sunday, regardless of weather conditions .. Walks are generally 3-4 hours in length, with the distance travelled dependent on the terrain and conditions ... Some walks may be strenuous with moorland or coastal path stretches ... Please arrive at the start point suitably equipped because the Walk Leader may refuse to take you if you are not, as this can affect the safety and well-being of the whole group. Everyone walking with our Group does so at their own risk.'

Can be described in two Parts. The first Part follows the route up the right-hand side of the Dart from Kingswear - across the river from Dartmouth itself - to Greenway. (It is also possible to walk up the left-hand side of the River direct to Dittisham, but this is not so interesting.) The second Part continues from Dittisham up to Totnes.
