The South West Coast Path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Because it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest. It has been voted ‘Britain’s Best Walking route twice in a row by readers of The Ramblers‘ Walk magazine, and regularly features in lists of the world’s best walks.
