About this deal

Steeperton Tor.As above. Beautiful tor in the north section of Dartmoor overlooking a natural amphitheatre of moorland. Amazing views and a great place to visit from Belstone in winter when it has snowed. OS Explorer OL28, Harveys Dartmoor North (better marking of bogs), or OpenStreetMap (good for paths and bogs) Please Note: From Ten Tors 2020 on, rare bird nesting areas and other out of bounds areas are shown on the Annex A paper mapping which has been distributed to Team Managers. Previous versions should be ignored and discarded. Watch out for bogs!

If you will be navigating across the high moor and want to find out more about the wild open space of Dartmoor get a copy of our Ten Tors Navigators Notes. This ancient western oak woodland's a great place to leave behind the pressures of everyday life. The path goes from one end of the woods to the other, with the sound of the river's many rapids and cascades ever present. Demand for the Dartmoor Tors Compendium continues, making it a regular on a Dartmoor book shelf. Retail outlets for the book continue to grow; it is now available in regional book shops and National Trust shops. No one has ever tried to walk all the tors in one go before. This might be because no one’s ever agreed on how many there actually are… (see disclaimer below). Steeperton Tor. Beautiful tor in the north section of Dartmoor overlooking a natural amphitheatre of moorland. Amazing views and a great place to visit from Belstone in winter when it has snowed.Ger Tor. Situated high above the tail of Tavy Cleave in the west section of the National Park. Stunning views. High Willhays 621m (highest point on Dartmoor's north moor. Also highest point in southern England). East Dartmoor consists of 3 joined but distinct areas: Yarner Wood, Trendlebere Down and the Bovey Valley Woodlands. Together they provide an excellent example of internationally important western oakwood with its associated bird and lower plant communities.

However be warned to take care and walk around the fragile habitat to avoid damaging the trees, lichen and mosses on the boulders. Located near the National Trust’s Castle Drogo in the Teign Gorge to the north of the Park, offering unbeatable views. This is a really accessible tor, and possibly one of the best walking routes on Dartmoor. With dramatic views across the gorge, to the castle and Dartmoor’s north moor, a must for a summer’s day out. Start with self-guided short walks direct from the National Park Visitor Centres at Haytor, Postbridge and Princetown if you are not confident about map ready. They can easily be done in an hour. Or why not join an organised walk led by an experienced guide? You won't need to worry about map reading and guided walks are a great way to discover more about Dartmoor's beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage.Dartmoor is full of surprises and unexpected hidden gems, but often you need to be with someone who knows the secrets or you may well miss out! See our guides listed here. I will not be held liable for any damages caused, as this is just a piece of advice as to how difficult tor bagging can get. The rule of the thumb from me is to always try and view the outcrop from public land, and if this is not possible due to tree cover etc, then please respect landowners' wishes by staying away if they do not welcome visitors. I've found that being granted landowner permission to visit an outcrop is one of the most rewarding things I have achieved during this challenge.

The more I think about it, the less prepared I realise I am. Despite years of walking and camping on Dartmoor, I’ve never wild camped alone before. Sure, I’ve been in a tent on my own hundreds of times, but there’s always been someone else nearby. Odd that it’s never happened and fitting, I feel, to break that never on Dartmoor. Miles Without Stiles are stile-free routes, meaning that they are suitable for those with limited mobility.These routes are suitable for a wide range of users including those in all-terrain powered mobility scooters and families with younger children. The difficulty of the event is very weather dependant - besides lovely spring days, there has been snow, heatwaves, fog, and heavy rain (making river crossing dangerous) over the 50 years the event has been running.You can fdollow the 17 mile Erme Plym Trail from Ivybridge to Laira Bridge on the outskirts of Plymouth. Or there's a five mile circular GPS walking route here with an ONS map of the Erme estuary here. 13. Dartmoor Princetown Walk Cox Tor.Awesome views. Great place from which to watch the sun set over the Westcountry. Very easily accessible from a large car parking area on the western edge of Dartmoor's high moor. Cox Tor is also superb as part of a circular walk taking in Roos Tor and The Staple Tors. If you are new to Dartmoor, you should do a few training days here first to acclimatise to the terrain. Thank you to everyone taking part in the Ten Tors event for supporting Donate for Dartmoor. You’re helping us to look after and care for the moor so that we can all enjoy it for years to come.
