The walk follows a farm track between fields with picturesque views over the coast and passes by a nautical navigation daymark. This can be seen by boats many miles out to sea, assisting them to locate their position and avoid the dangers of the many hidden rocks.

After about 600 metres down a small incline, our walk turns left onto a grass track (straight on would lead to the optional detour to the WW2 Complex) and follows the coast path between trees, emerging onto the coast, where the Mew Stone rocks can be seen covered in seabirds. We stay on this track as it follows the headland towards Kelly's Cove. There are ample opportunities for those with cameras to take some pictures or just soak up the lovely atmosphere as we continue on our walk, which turns inland just before reaching Coleton Fishacre Gardens, then crosses fields where sheep and horses are often seen grazing. All too soon we find ourselves back at our starting place, but feeling refreshed and energised.

We found the directions a little confusing on this walk and had to abort (light was fading). When you reach the WW2 complex, have a look around. Once you're done, make you way back to the lookout station. When you are looking at it, look left and you will see a path going downhill into the trees (at first glance it doesn't look right). This zig-zag's down the cliff. When you reach the sign post, turn LEFT to continue the walk. Please note that if you go at any time during the Dartmouth Regatta you will find the first car park full but take a LEFT at Coleton Fishacre and you will find a less busy car park. You will also find if you do go when the Regatta is on, expect 1 or 1 1/2 hour traffic jam to get out of the area as the Regatta Finishes. Can't really rate this walk high as we had to abort due to some navigational issues. Not bad though!
