The Two Moors Way also meets the Coleridge Way at Lynmouth. Lynmouth is one of the termini of this 102 mile walk which crosses both Exmoor and Dartmoor. It starts/ends at Ivybridge in South Devon. From here you can walk the Erme Trail to reach the South West Coast Path on the south coast. These routes enable a large circular walk around Devon and Cornwall.

The Tarka Trail also meets the Coleridge Way at Lynmouth. This figure-of-eight walk follows the South West Coast Path to Barnstaple. It then follows the Tarka Trail cycleway into mid Devon to Meeth, before returning to footpaths and country lanes to reach the northern edge of Dartmoor. It then returns northwards passing through pretty Devon villages and rolling countryside to reach Eggesford. From here one catches the train on the Tarka Line to Barnstaple. From Barnstaple the trail follows footpaths into the foothills of Exmoor, then crossing it to reach Lynmouth again. For full route details in a PDF go to this website.
