Kingswear To Dartmouth Castle Walk 

Along The River Dart from Kingswear upstream to Higher Ferry, then across on the ferry to Dartmouth. Walk continues downstream to Dartmouth Castle. Completed June 2020.
A spectacular and easy walk with marvellous vies of the River Dart Estuary. Total of about 3 miles. Allow 2 hours.
Kingswear is opposite Dartmouth on the estuary of the River Dart. This is a wonderful walk starting in Kingswear and proceeds upstream along the footpath between the river and the railway track of The Dartmouth Heritage Railway. There is an alternative route through the woods above the estuary.
Having crossed the river on the ferry, the walk proceeds along the river, downstream through Dartmouth to the impressive Dartmouth Castle and the river meets the sea. Along the route, their are great views of the river to be enjoyed.

Brownstone To Coleton Camp Walk 

Along South Devon Coast Between Brixham & Dartmouth, completed May 2020.
A spectacular and strenuous walk but very much worth the effort. Total of about 5 miles. Allow 3 hours.
This spectacular walk starts from the NT car park at Brownstone then proceeds past the Dartmouth Daymark. Originally built in 1864, it has been warning shipping of the dangers of the entrance to Dartmouth since.
At Froward Point, the path joins the South West Coast Path. Our route turns east, high up over the coast and overlooking Shooter Rock, Shag Rock and Mew Stone.
The path goes past the brilliant Coleton Fishacre Gardens owned by the NT and Pudcombe Cove before taking a steep ascent above the dramatic and craggy Devon coast, again.  It is worth taking a detour to explore the beautiful National Trust gardens and to stop for a cuppa and some lunch.
The path turns inland off the Coast Path just before it descend down a steep hill to Scabbacombe. The walk finishes at Coleton Camp NT Car Park, a total of about 5 miles.
