Two Castles Trail
The Two Castles Trail takes you through beautiful and peaceful countryside – from the edge of Dartmoor, past historic battlegrounds to the ancient town of Launceston. It links the medieval castles of Okehampton and Launceston.
The route passes through a variety of landscapes, including moorland in the east, woodland and river valleys and, as well as the two castles themselves, gives insights into a wealth of historic interest along the way.
The Two Castles trail covers 24 miles/38kms in total.
The route has been divided into four stages, all accessible at each end by public transport. Since car parking is limited along the route, the use of public transport is recommended, although frequency of buses vary according to the day of the week and location.
