Start off with an invigorating climb up to the Yearnor Wood as you leave the sleepy harbour of Porlock Weir behind. This is followed by a steady meander through thick oak trees which lead you to Culbone Church. The path then divides allowing you to decide between the main southern trail leading onto open farmland or the northern path through the thick woodland of Culbone Wood. No matter which route you choose it will be a day of invigorating walking.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
