Why all the excitement?
The Steam Coast Trail is an ongoing project to build a breathtaking network of multi-user paths around West Somerset. It weaves walkers, cyclists, mobility scooter and wheelchair users and runners through glorious countryside!
Where is it?
Phase One of the Steam Coast Trail was opened in December 2016. It runs 2km from Dunster Beach, almost all the way to Blue Anchor.
Phase Two of the Steam Coast Trail opened in October 2018 and runs 1.1km from Old Cleeve (Dragon's Cross) to Washford (Cobbler's Steps).
