The trail at Mamhead is part of Haldon Forest Park, managed by the Forestry Commission.
It is more easily accessed from its own car park (which is free). To get there from Exeter, stay left on the A380 up Telegraph Hill, and take the left turning signposted for Mamhead and Starcross. Along this lane take the first right turning signposted for Ashcombe, the car park is visible a short way along on the left.
The trail takes you along surfaces paths suitable for wheelchairs and buggies and there are benches and seats along the way for a rest or a snack spot.
After this you can choose to take a path that extends the walk, or continue on the main path – they rejoin together further on to complete the loop. Both routes remain buggy friendly but the longer one is a bit rougher underfoot.
It’s a great place for all ages, with lots of space to run around and lots of side paths to explore. Enjoy!
