20 circular walks all graded by route and difficulty, they can be enjoyed by the whole family and are the ideal companion for day trips and holidays.
Dartmoor is part of a vast, raised granite plateau, rising to 2,073ft at its highest point, High Willhays. Where the granite has been exposed to the elements, it has weathered into fantastic ‘tors’-the most famous and accessible of which is Haytor. Dartmoor also has a number of beautiful rivers that have cut deep valleys, now thickly wooded, at places such as the Teign gorge at Castle Drogo. The walks in this book range from a gentle stroll through the forests around a moorland reservoir, to a tougher route across the open moor to explore the upper reaches of one of Dartmoor’s prettiest rivers.
