  3. Tavistock

    This is easy walk of 3 miles over moorland takes in two tors, an ancient cross and involves a little stream jumping.

  4. Large red words on the OS Map spell out a warning to hikers and tourists alike: Danger Area restricted access. I had this notion that the northern landscape of Dartmoor was a fenced off landscape, uninviting to hikers. Littered with UXBs and danger!

  5. Postbridge

    The Postbridge audio walk is a 6 mile (10km) circular walk starting from the Information Centre and includes far reaching views from Hartland Tor, historial remains from Dartmoor’s industrial past and a stunning waterfall.

  6. Fernworthy Reservoir, Fernworthy

    Gazing across at Fernworthy Reservoir with the sun low in the sky and the gaggle of Canada Geese coasting nearby, there is no better place on Dartmoor than Potter's walk for a gentle stroll of almost a mile, or for exploring with young children.

  7. Yelverton

    “I have never before in my long and eclectic career been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” - Steven Speilberg

  8. Totnes

    For enthusiastic long-distance walkers, the Dart Valley Trail is a waymarked route linking Totnes and Dartmouth. The walk described here gives the possibility of adding this middle part of the Dart Valley to the Dart Valley Trail.

  9. Bovey Tracey

    This easy three-mile route takes in two lovely reservoirs on the eastern side of the moor in a figure-of-eight walk. There are plenty of paths to extend your walk if you wish to go further.

  10. Bellever

    The Bellever audio walk is a 6 mile (10km) circular walk starting from Postbridge Information Centre and gives a mixture of woodland, moorland and riverside walking, intersperced with several archaeological sites.

  11. Plymouth

    Plymouth has been an important naval port for many centuries, which has led to the building of a variety of defences to protect the port.

    This walk passes a number of these defences as it circles around the eastern side of Plymouth Sound; it also

  12. Plymouth

    This walk includes the industrial remains of the Tavistock Railway and its viaducts, a tramway that used granite sleepers, and a quarry complete with engine house.

  13. Tavy Cleave, Tavistock

    This is a moderate walk of 4.5 miles through the heart of a rugged cleave can be extended to a difficult walk of 9 miles.

  14. Newton Abbot

    Dartmoor walks don’t have to involve donning a huge rucksack and striding out onto the granite plateau, reliant on your navigation skills. Particularly on the eastern and southern sides – where rivers have cut deeply into softer slates and shales –...

  15. Chagford

    Into the valley of the North Teign River to Gidleigh then to Scorhill Down and the Tolmen Stone and back to Batworthy Corner.

  16. South Brent

    This is a moderate walk of 5.5 miles takes in an ancient trackway and two crosses, or is a 3-mile easy stroll up and back to Avon Dam near South Brent.

  17. Newton Abbot

    The Teign is Dartmoor’s most iconic river. From a bleak moorland spring, it meanders some 50km to the South Devon coast at Teignmouth. This four-hour walk in its upper valley takes in wonderous views and the glorious vision of a certain Mr. Drewe

  18. The recent and overdue induction of former poet laureate, Ted Hughes’, into Westminster Abbey’s Poet’s Corner, was my inspiration for a classic walk into northern Dartmoor’s brooding centre.

    The Princetown audio walk is a 6 mile (10km) circular walk starting from the High Moorland Visitor Centre, taking you across moorland to a waterfall, aqueduct, Bronze Age settlements and stone rows.

  20. Newton Abbot

    “There is little pleasure to be gained from struggling along a contrived route across desolate and boggy hills just for the sake of wilderness.”
