The Two Moors Way, Sue Viccars - This guidebook describes the 187km (116 mile) Devon Coast-to-Coast Path, or Two Moors Way. The route travels south to north, from Wembury on the south coast, up through Dartmoor and mid-Devon, through Exmoor to Lynmouth. The route described combines the Two Moors Way between Ivybridge and Lynmouth, with the Erme-Plym Trail starting (or finishing) at Wembury in the South Devon AONB. This mostly off-road and waymarked trail can be walked within a week, however it is split into 11 stages to provide greater planning flexibility. This guidebook combines clear route descriptions and OS map extracts with plentiful practical details on each stage of the route as well as advice on accommodation, facilities, and how to travel to and from the Way. Also included is a wealth of detail on the history, geology and wildlife along the way, as well as noting points of interest to enhance your walk. Published June 15.

Walk Exmoor, David and Carol Hill - 'I do not know of any other comparable area where such wildness and such softness are so closely interwoven.' J H B Peel's 'Portrait of Exmoor'. It's this striking contrast and variety of intertwined landscapes which gives Exmoor its remarkable appeal and offers such a richly rewarding and stimulating area for adventurous walkers. There's wildness on the desolate moorland plateau and along the rugged cliff tops, both of which offer an expansive feel and miles of fine distant views. One of the joys of Exmoor is the seemless, flowing connection between moors and cliffs, whilst at the same time, cutting through them, are winding valleys that provide a more gentle, intimate landscape. All 40 walking routes include: route summary, ratings for Effort Time Distance Ascents/Descents Refreshments and Vertigo risk, fully detailed walk description including frequent timings to aid navigation, GPS waypoints for pin-point navigational accuracy, full colour Ordnance Survey mapping, short walk and stroll alternatives.

Exmoor and North Devon Coast Path: SW Coast Path Minehead to Bude

Exmoor Rangers' Favourite Walks, John Gilman - This ever popular walking guide now appears in a new and fully revised edition, updated by staff and volunteers of Exmoor National Park Authority. The fact that this is the 8th edition shows how popular this book has become. Exmoor is the "friendly" moor, and although there are spectacular views to be obtained from the beaten track, the moor's most attractive moods are saved for those who venture a little way from the roads. The aim of this guidebook is to tempt you to sample the tranquillity and natural beauty which are special qualities of the National Park. Visitors often wonder what is behind the beech hedgebanks that line the roads. Here is your chance to find out and to enjoy the wildlife and peace that can only be found by leaving the car behind. The twenty-five walks are all circular, vary from 2 to 8 miles in length and cover most parts of the National Park. Colour sketch maps enable users to get the most out of the fantastic walking experience that the National Park has to offer.  Published April 11.

Best Walks on Exmoor, Richard Webber - Straddling the counties of Somerset and Devon, Exmoor measures approximately 21 miles west to east and 15 miles north to south. Exmoor may be one of the smallest National Parks but what it lacks in size it makes up for in beauty and contrast, affording walkers a diverse landscape to explore. Like its fictional heroine Lorna Doone, Exmoor is both wild and gentle. It's easy to see why author R D Blackmore chose it as the setting for his novel about a family of outlaws expelled from Scotland who came south and terrorised the locals. The scenery stirs the imagination, thanks to the coastline of stark cliffs lining the Bristol Channel, the wooded valleys, the tumbling streams and the wild, empty moors. This book provides the reader with some thirty of the area's best walks. From short distance routes for those with young children to longer treks for experienced walkers, every route is detailed, and includes a basic sketch map and new colour photography. Published March 12. Limited availability.
