komoot planned a hike.

This stunning stage explores a wildlife-rich and geologically-significant section of the Coast Path.
If your legs are screaming a little after some strenuous stages, you will be pleased to know there is almost no climbing on this hike.
Much of the trail along this stage is managed by the National Trust and also follows part of the Tarka Trail; a 163-mile (262-kilometer) trail that follows the journey of Tarka the otter through picturesque countryside, over dramatic sea cliffs and down to beautiful beaches.
Towards the end of the hike, it is worth taking a slight detour to explore Braunton Burrows National Nature Reserve. The largest sand dune system in England, the Burrows is extremely rich in lichens and herbs and is home to many rare plants and animals.
This stage finishes in the village of Braunton, which has a range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
