Baggy Point Circular Walk

Join local guide Paul Madgett, on a explorative walk of Baggy Point.

24th Jun

What to Expect:

This guided walk will follow the path around baggy point, on the South West Coast Path. Paul will cover some of the important features of the coastline and how the landscape was formed as well as looking at some of the flora and fauna that is present on the point.

For this walk a reasonable degree of fitness is required; there are a few rougher sections that could be muddy in places (hence strong walking shoes or boots; some may wish to use walking poles), and there maybe a few styles to negotiate depending on the route taken on the day. Please wear walking shoes or walking boots, especially if staying for the afternoon’s walk.

No dogs to be brought on this walk please. Children are welcome, but must be closely supervised by a responsible adult.
