the scenery in this segment of the path is truly awesome, and the path is generally well-maintained, though rock falls and subsidence do take their toll and require occasional (well-signposted) diversions. Hartland Quay to Welcombe mouth is generally easy, with gentle undulations and good underfoot....More
