Exe Estuary Trail


This newly constructed cycle trail offers an almost entirely traffic-free, wonderfully level route which forms part of the South Coast NCN No.2 along flat, surfaced trails to provide easy cycling.

The trail takes you right around the Exe Estuary from Dawlish to Exmouth, passing through the pretty villages of Starcross, Topsham and Lympstone to name a few.  The estuary is of international importance for wintering waders and wildfowl, supporting thousands of birds.  RSPB reserves near Topsham and Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve offer some of the best opportunities to view wildlife along the estuary.

By car: parking available at many places along the trail including Dawlish, Exeter, Topsham and Exmouth.
By train: railway lines run adjacent to trail, visit the Travel Devon website for stations and times.
You can also use different ferries to take you across the estuary, from Starcross to Exmouth, Topsham to Exminster, Topsham to Turf Locks and Exeter Quay to Double Locks.
