Below you will find a variety of routes that use ‘Dartefacts‘ as ‘Waypoints‘ for a Dartmoor walk; ‘DarteWalks’!
Walking Routes are all listed by their Car Park Walk Start Locations
|Green (Easy) Routes:|
This grade includes walks up to almost 5 miles. There will be no steep slopes, no technical difficulties (no stepping stones, bogs etc!) and will usually follow trails/ tracks or easy to walk on open moors. Many of these walks are pushchair/ wheel chair/ mobility scooter friendly.
|Amber (Moderate) Routes:|
This grade includes walks from 5 miles to almost 10 miles. Every possible Dartmoor terrain except rock climbing can be encountered and so these routes will require excellent technical navigation skills and confidence over difficult terrain.
|Red (Strenuous) Routes:|
This grade includes walks of 10 or more miles a day. Some of these routes are multi-day wild camping hikes which will require carrying camping equipment. Every possible Dartmoor terrain except rock climbing can be encountered and so these routes will require excellent technical navigation skills and confidence over difficult terrain.
|Points of Potential Difficulty:
The above Darticon is used to highlight 'points of potential difficulty' on walks. This can include river/ stream crossings, stepping stones, marshes/ bogs, very steep slopes, rock/ boulder/ clitter scrambling terrain etc. Such challenges are only encountered on walks of a Moderate or Strenuous Grade. In heavy rain, thick fog or snow a route can easily move up to the next grade or even become too dangerous to attempt.
All DarteWalks visit at least one Dartmoor 365 item.
Many of the items listed on this website, especially around the edges of the National Park Boundary, are entirely on private land and in that instance, access must be sought from the landowner before visiting. Do not assume that a listed item is legally accessible.
Military Training involving Live Firing takes place on Dartmoor and it is up to the individual to find out if their walk enters any of the military firing ranges and whether firing is taking place. No responsibility for trespass, injury or damage to property or persons etc. can be attributed to this project.
Although these walks attempt to highlight ‘Potential Points of Difficulty’ as with any purchased walking guidebook it is the responsibility of the individual to judge and ascertain the safety and suitability of any walk attempted.
