Dartmoor Hard Walks

For the experienced walker

These hard walks are only really for experienced walkers. Most of them lead through undulating countryside at some point along the route. There will be inclines, but wth those come fun descents and breathtaking views over Dartmoor. Some are linear, some circular. The walks are aimed at being challenging for a reasonably fit individual.

Take a look at the map for just some of the harder walks you can do on Dartmoor. All of the routes state the level of difficulty and give an outline of the routes that you are fully informed before you even leave the house.
