Difficulty

Access is tricky, following narrow lanes. However , the walk can also start at Moretonhampstead.

The village has a free carpark and a delightful pub , the Ring of Bells

The walk
This most varied circular walk includes a long & narrow stone bridge, stepping stones (which can be bypassed), & magnificent views of Dartmoor
There are several steady climbs and one steep descent. Much of the landscape assumes the appearance of an estate/park created by the second Viscount Hambleden.

The walk follows part of the Dartmoor Way and if you are in the area twe highly recommend this walk
