Eight of these trig points sit on a beautifully varied trail loop in East Devon. The route starts on Budleigh Salterton seafront and follows the South West Coast Path to West Down Beacon. Far reaching views from here extend to Berry Head, Portland and Dartmoor. From here, both 5 and 8 Trig routes head inland and cross Woodbury Common, passing 3 trigs on the way. The routes split at Harpford with the 5 Trigs route crossing Mutter’s Moor and on to High Peak. The 8 Trigs route continues to Harford Common and the Sid Valley, before reaching the South West Coast Path again at Weston Cliff. The route climbs multiple hills as is passes through Sidmouth before joining the 5 Trigs at High Peak. A stunning section of coastline with rolling hills leads back to Budleigh Salterton.
