8 miles on forest paths. Generally gentle climbs. Some possible slippery rocks to walk over.

As autumn draws in, join me on a gentle wander around Lustleigh Cleave Forest.

On the very eastern edge of Dartmoor, Lustleigh Cleave is a deep wooded river valley, part of the East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve.

Hopefully the beech and oak trees will just be turning for winter with vivid displays of gold. orange and red. 

This is a fairly gentle walk - with only 2 moderate climbs during the day. 

There is a point on the walk where we'll be fording the River Bovey.  The 2nd photo below shows the rocks we'll be crossing as we ford the river.  If it's been particular wet, this section could be slippery.

For the rest of the walk, we'll be walking on fairly well established paths.  There will be a few sections which could be a bit muddy, especially if it's been raining recently or if the river is in flood.


Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:

If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
