Following people’s feedback, the routes are shorter than many previous existing walks, ranging from two kilometres to just under eight kilometres for those wanting to spend more time in the parklands.
Two more collections of walks – Exmoor Classics and Easier Access Exmoor – will launch in the next 12 months, and also keep an eye out for a new dark sky discovery trail coming this autumn that Hinkley Point C has also helped fund through the Hinkley Tourism Action Partnership.
Dan James, Rural Enterprise Manager for Exmoor National Park, said: “It’s been great to see the return of visitors to Exmoor. Communities, businesses and partners have all been working together to encourage safe, responsible visits ahead of a busy summer. Our Explorer Walks are a fantastic way to find your new favourite place on Exmoor and discover not just its best-known parts, but also lesser-known ones.
“We want to help people really get under the skin of the place, to understand something of the story of people and nature that has given rise to this amazing landscape, and to do so in a way that is sustainable and accessible to most visitors.
“We’re grateful for Hinkley Point C’s support in making this possible, along with the accompanying website and videos offering a taste of the new walks.”
