Moderate Walks

For all ages and fitness levels

These moderate walks are typically between 5 and 10 miles long. Some of them are over easy ground, while others will require some tramping over rougher ground. There may be some undulating countryside and some inclines, but overall the walks are enjoyable for a reasonably fit individual (and even for those that are not!).

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