Overview

A figure of eight walk starting from Bennett’s Cross taking in Grimspound, Heathercombe, Coombe Down, Hockney Tor down to Challacombe Down. The walk does have a couple of steep climbs and will be boggy in places with about 4/5 stiles. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Parking at Bennett’s Cross is limited and whilst there is another small car park a short distance away you might want to consider car share if that is possible for you.
