Dartmoor in Winter can be very wet/wintry and boggy. Expect bad weather

This walk across Dartmoor will be roughly 10 miles and there's a total elevation throughout the day of about 700m.  

Will be starting in the village of Widecombe in the Moor before heading up onto the high moor, across Hamel Down to Grimspound before turning east to Jays Grave and Hound Tor.   We'll then head back to Widecombe on the Moor.

There is a pub (with a Pub Garden!) in Widecombe for the end of the day, although this can get pretty busy if it's a nice day.

Dogs

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

  • Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
  • Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
  • Please be aware of the guidance from Dartmoor National Park on visiting with your dogs - esp as we'll be visiting during lambing season.

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.
