The Two Castles Trail is a 24 mile waymarked walking route between Okehampton and Launceston Castles. Starting in Okehampton in Devon or Launceston in Cornwall, the walk meanders through rolling countryside full of history.
The Two Castles Trail takes you through beautiful and peaceful countryside - from the edge of Dartmoor, past historic battlegrounds to the ancient capital of Cornwall - linking the Castles of Okehampton in the east and Launceston in the west.
The route can be divided into four stages, each of which take a day to walk. Stages can be followed in both directions, and they have good bus links to Okehampton and Launceston.
The route includes a number of climbs, and crosses a variety of terrain including stretches of road, woodland tracks, field paths and open crossings of moor and downs. In the summer the route is likely to be dry, however during the winter, woodland tracks, fields and parts of the moors can be particularly mudd
