Walking on Dartmoor
Dartmoor has everything from guided walks for those a little less confident of your surroundings, to a challenging trek across windswept moors and everything in between. You can download an audio walk or try any of the circular walks, that range in ability. Take a gentle stroll through the woods or get kitted out for a challeging tor to tor walk.
From Chagford there are a number of walks to try. It's a short walk from Chagford to the stunning Teign Gorge. Follow the Two Moors Way by the River Teign to the mouth of the gorge. Castle Drogo sits high above the gorge, well worth walking the extra mile for the stunning views. You'll also find wild swimming spots on route.
In the spring try the Whiddon Deer Park Bluebell Circular Walk. This walk is superb any time of year but the bluebells are a treat.
Chagford sits below Meldon Hill. The views from up top are magnificent. You can just climb the hill from the town or try the Meldon Hill circular walk.
There are stunning walks throughout Dartmoor to be enjoyed by all. Dartmoor weather can be wild and unpredictable and the terrain can be dificult so make sure you are wearing sturdy footwear, suitable clothing and let someone know where you are going, and what time you expect to be back.
