Explore Devon - the naturally active way
We know we are lucky to live in Devon, but do we make the most of what is on our doorstep? With two distinctive coastlines, two National Parks, two World Heritage Sites, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and countless, woodlands, forests, rivers, parks and open spaces, there is something for everyone. There is also a great network of cycleways and footpaths to help you explore all this fabulous countryside and get active at the same time whether you want a short stroll with the children, a half-day bike ride or a long trek.
A new website has just been launched to help give you ideas for things to do and places to go to be more naturally active. Not only does it have details of multi-use routes for safe and easy walking or cycling and a wide variety of walking routes from accessible trails suitable for families with young children and pushchairs or the elderly and those who use wheelchairs routes, but it also details specific sites and areas to visit where you can see some of the glorious Devon wildlife or explore the geology. It also explains the essentials like how you can get to these places easily, where to park or find out bus times and whether you’ll be able to buy a cup of tea.
Devon provides endless opportunities for all ages and abilities and it is not just about getting out and active but discovering new interests at the same time as improving your health and well-being. Whether you’re taking a gentle stroll or having an invigorating hike or bike ride or just at your “special place”, you’ll feel happier and more connected to nature. There are lots of ways our beaches, countryside and moors can make you feel good!
