Please Register as a New User in order to reply to this topic.

Post-lockdown walk inspiration from Dartmoor: A classic route exploring one of the more rugged parts of Dartmoor, this short round packs in a lot of variety, and plenty of rough ground. First follow Tavy Cleave up into the wild heart of the moor. A twisting gorge choked with boulders, and featuring a cascading river and steep little granite peaks, the cleave feels surprisingly remote and impressive. Both branches of the upper valley host extensive archaeological remains, including the prehistoric village of Watern Oke, where over 70 hut circles have been identified. The climate must have been more hospitable back in the day. Return via Hare Tor, a nice craggy summit with far-reaching views.
