Lydford Gorge, National Trust
Lydford Gorge, a short walk to see the Devil’s Cauldron starts at around 1500 steps. Although you have to factor in some pretty steep sections to get back out of the gorge which will help raise your heart rate. In the Cauldron the bare rocks of the gorge rise up high on either side of you, maybe take a moment to close your eyes – what can you hear or feel around you?
A walk to see the Whitelady Waterfall is slightly longer at around 2500 steps and you can vary the route to take in the bird hide and miss the steps if you choose. For those wanting a cardio workout try going up the 200 plus uneven steps to get back out. Just be aware in the narrow sections of the people heading down.
Take a rest near the river to try some forest bathing, don’t worry it doesn’t involve getting wet unless it’s raining. At the end of the walk you can take a Devon cream tea in the cafe. Back...
