A challenging off-road ride. There are easy sections, but others that are bumpy and some that involve moderate climbs. The reward is excellent and varied scenery along this 46-mile route that runs from Holme near Hunstanton, and inland to touch the edge of Thetford forest, finishing just beyond the Country Park of Knettishall Heath. Most of Peddars Way is off-road. It is open to walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.
