IDE WALKS

Enjoy the country side and the village of Ide in Devon

A MODERATE WALK DOWN FOOTPATHS

Saxon Bridge & Alphin Brook Valley

A typical narrow tree-lined country road overlooking the valley on the north side of the A30. Picturesque Clarks Pond is at the bottom of the track, before the footpath rises to meet the road that goes through the A30 subway.

Round The World

Hilly, but with the reward of wonderful views. Land saturated by wet weather creates mini waterfalls along Fordland Bottom and wild garlic abounds in season. College Lane can be very slippery in wet weather.
