Named signs with coot logoTwo Counties Way

90 km / 56 miles

Devon, Somers
The path follows the route of the Grand Western Canal to Tiverton and then down the Exe Valley, via Bickleigh, Silverton, Killerton and Broad Clyst to Exeter. The final section takes in the towpath of Exeter Ship Canal and Powderham (with its Castle) to reach the end at Starcross. Passing through, or near to, Bradford on Tone, Wellington, Tiverton, Bickleigh, Exeter and Kenton, the route is coincident in short sections with the West Deane Way, Grand Western Canal walk and the Exe Valley Walk. In essence it provides a link from Taunton to the South West Coast Path National Trail.
