Budleigh Salterton to Ladram Bay


The route starts out at the White Bridge by the River Otter at Budleigh Salterton and then proceeds around eastwards over the coastal path towards Ladram Bay.
On route to Ladram Bay is the Brandy Head lookout post from World War 2. On reaching Ladram Bay there is a very steep climb towards Mutters Moor, known for it's old smuggling route. At the top is Peak Hill. There is then a descent into the seaside town of Sidmouth.
You need to run along the seafont and towards the far east end. You cross a small bridge and then ascend up a residential area (there has been a lot of coastal erosion here) towards the start of Salcombe Hill. When ascending the hill you go through a field and then a wooded section. The views at the top are spectacular across the whole of Lyme Bay. If you carry on eastwards you reach an extremely steep downhill section (to steep to run).
