  2. My OS Map showed a car park at Two Bridges, located at the edge of a small disused quarry. The weather was typical Dartmoor, cloud and the 50/50 chance of rain, sunshine, drizzle, blue sky, cloud. You’ll get used to it. Bring your coat.

  3. 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!

  4. Ashburton

  5. Of the many options for short circular walks from Belstone on the northern edge of the moor this has to be the loveliest in spring:
    a run across the lower moorland slopes of Cosdon Hill is followed by a steep descent through Skaigh Wood.

  6. Bovey Tracey

  11. 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 –...

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Tavistock

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