Dartmoor provides the finest moorland walking in the south of England, plus excellent walking through the woods and farmland around the fringe of the moor. This guide covers the southern half (ie, south of a line between Tavistock and Bovey Tracey). The 22 routes are between one and eight miles in length (1.6-12.8kms) and will provide an introduction to an area of great variety. Highlights include the string of tors east of Tavistock, the paths onto the moorland from the woods around Burrator Reservoir and the standing stones and ruined mine on the Eylesbarrow Mine route.
