Summary: The Two Moors Way, also known as the Devon Coast to Coast, is a long-distance path that runs from Ivybridge in South Devon to Lynmouth on the coast of North Devon, crossing parts of both Dartmoor and Exmoor along the way. The route was officially opened on 29 May 1976, a fact commemorated on four inscribed stones located along the way. Although there is one most widely used route, passing through (from south to north): Hexworthy, Postbridge, Chagford, Hittisleigh, Morchard Bishop, Witheridge, Hawkridge, Knowstone, Withypool and Simonsbath, during some parts of the Way alternative routes are possible, one of these passing through Holne rather than Hexworthy and Postbridge. Allow for about 15 miles per day on the trail. Though it is well-marked and mostly maintained, the going can be slow over the moor, particularly when muddy or when covered in snow.
