Choose a terrain and go for it - this path goes through parts of Plymouth city and all around the coast of Devon and Cornwall. Too many favourite parts to write.
The path is beginning to get very muddy and slippery in places so care is needed. I take walking poles which give me extra support when going down slippery bits, and of course walking shoes to give more grip, but I still keep passing people in unsuitable shoes!
