Walk or Cycle The Dartmoor Way

The circular route allows you to experience the stunning wild spaces on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park. Additional days can be added to take in a higher Moor Link (+22.5 miles) making the route as a figure of eight, or walk a shorter north or south circular route. There are no official start or end points meaning you can have the freedom to travel wherever works best for you. Whichever route you decide on, Luggage Transfers are there to move your bags allowing you to hike unencumbered. This is a well signposted route, which when complimented with the leaflet produced by the Dartmoor National Park Authority, can be enjoyed by all ages during all seasons. It explores bridleways, wooded valleys and the moors and tors around this popular National Park with its abundance of flora and fauna.  Picturesque stone bridges cross the many streams running down from the higher ground as you follow the purple arrows to the many villages and towns hidden in this stunning area of South Devon.  Devon is also home to the Two Moors Way.

This route is one that can also be cycled, further information on this can be found at Explore Dartmoor – Cycle Route.
