Route map of walk to Yes Tor and High Willhays calling at Cranmere Pool Letter Box, Lints Tor and along a valley containing an ancient woodland copse.
A circular walk from Meldon Reservoir to Yes Tor and High Willhays.
In making this a longer walk to take in more of Dartmoor, we aimed
for Hangingstone Hill to see what the Peat Pass was like, then
called at the Cranmere Pool Letter Box.
On our way back, we called at Great Kneeset and Lints Tor with
the aim of walking along the West Okement River valley where we came
across an ancient woodland called Black-a-tor Copse. And finally,
alongside Meldon Reservoir to the car park.
As this route involves walking over the Okehampton Range
which is a designated military area,
please either telephone 0800 458 4868 or visit www.mod.uk/access
to check civilian open access dates.
