The East Devon Trail is a ~185 kilometre (115 mile) bikepacking route through East Devon, a rural and coastal landscape between the county's capital of Exeter and neighbouring Dorset and Somerset. The mixed terrain route has been devised by East Devon local Katherine Moore; a zoologist by training and cycling writer by trade.

The Trail aims to showcase this magnificent, and all too often overlooked region of Devon, which will astound you with the sheer variety of habitats, from freshwater marshes to lowland heath, green agricultural field networks to steep cliffs to pebbled beaches and sleepy woodland.

It's no accident that the East Devon Trail visits many nature reserves, gorgeous towns and villages along its 185 kilometre length. We want to show you the incredible wildlife we're happy to support in East Devon; our rare lowland heath; migratory bird service stations; nation-leading species reintroduction programmes and of course the marvellous views and gravel tracks that accompany them.

From quaint thatched villages to delicious cream teas (#creamfirst), fish and chips on the beach and farm shops boasting local produce by the basket-load, there's plenty more to the East Devon experience to savour, if you're willing to give it the time.

While enjoying the East Devon Trail is free, riders are strongly urged to consider donating to the local FORCE Cancer Charity to help fund their vital work. FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre, Exeter) became a charity in 1987, with a Cancer Support and Information Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital that has supported many families in the decades since.
